Abstract

The study was conducted with the objective to find out the Incidence of Refractive error and analysis through cross tabulation between time spent on computer and Family history with Refractive Error Type. In this study, 1500 Professional College going students between 18 and 22 years of age, from South Bengal of West Bengal were evaluated. Clinical profiles of refractive errors among students were analyzed. This population-based cross-sectional study conducted in randomly selected young professional college students. A structured Case Record Form was implemented to collect the details of the relevant factors. Data were tabulated and analyzed using Statistical package (SPSS) and chi-square test, Cross tabulation and Reliability test to get the results. Our respondents were from different professional programs, out of which 585 (39%) were male respondents and 915 (61%) were female respondents. Refractive error diagnosed in 240 (16%) respondents out of which 91 (6%) were male and 149 (9.93%) female respondents. Out of 91 (6.06%) male, 63 (4.2%) myopic, 18 (1.2%) Hyperopic and 10 (.6%) were Astigmatic. Out of 149 (9.93%) female, 102 (6.8%) myopic, 25 (1.66%) hyperopic, 22 (1.46%) astigmatic and no refractive errors were found in 1260 (84%) respondents. The incidence of refractive error showed significant association in univariate analysis with time spent on computer and Family history.
