Study Objective:

In stage 1, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 2 concentrations of NVK-002 compared to Vehicle (placebo) for slowing the progression of myopia in children over a 3 year treatment period. In stage 2, the purpose of the study is to observe safety and efficacy in subjects re-randomized to one (1) year of treatment with NVK-002 or Vehicle following 3 years of treatment in children with progressive myopia.

Study Design:

This will be a 3-arm randomized, multi-center, double-masked, placebo-controlled study conducted in 2 stages.

Treatment arms are:

  • NVK-002 low dose concentration
  • NVK-002 high dose concentration
  • Vehicle (placebo)

Diagnosis and Key Eligibility Criteria:
