It has been shown that form deprivation stimulates axial length growth and hence myopia.  In a study presented at the annual meeting of ARVO, young guinea pigs undergoing form deprivation were administered either daily latanoprost or daily vehicle for 12 weeks.  Those that received vehicle had a .18 mm axial length increase vs. a .01mm axial length increase in the latanoprost group.  This suggests there may be a possibility that daily topical latanoprost may help stop progression of myopia, offering a potential new treatment for the condition.
