The role of S-cone neural activity in eye growth regulation and refractive development

We are conducting a research study to investigate how light-sensitive cells in the retina regulate eye growth and refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness).

This study has been approved by the University of Alabama at Birmingham Institutional Review Board (ref: 300008644).

You will be eligible to participate in the study if you are:

-18-35 years old.

-You have good general and ocular health

This study includes a single visit that is expected to last 90 minutes or less. If eligible, you will be compensated $50.00 for your time and participation in the study.
