Our Mission

Myopia is the most common eye disease in children and has experienced a dramatic increase in prevalence over the last 30 years. Myopia occurs in ~30-40% of children in the U.S. and E.U. and recent estimates suggest that number may be closer to 80% in Asia. Once considered a benign refractive condition myopia, even at low levels, is associated with numerous serious ophthalmic co-morbidities. Such ophthalmic co-morbidities include myopic macular degeneration, macular choroidal neovascularization, retinal detachment, glaucoma, and blindness. The greater the severity of myopia, the higher the risk of these ophthalmic co-morbidities later in life. Sydnexis was founded in San Diego in 2014 with the goal of developing a proprietary, stable, topical eyedrop to treat the progression of myopia in children.
