Abstract

Myopia is one of the most prevalent refractive error that can be defined as a state in which the eye fails to see distant objects properly. Most of the young adults are affected by myopia in the world due to many factors. A few researchers showed in their research articles that near work activities lead to the progression of myopia. The main objective of this paper is to identify all the main factors of myopia in young adults in the southern region of West Bengal, especially in Durgapur. To meet this objective a sample of 2500 young adults were selected using simple random sampling procedure and examined through Snellen’s Chart and retinoscope and found 575 young adults have been suffering from various grades of myopia. In the next phase, we have identified the relevant factors of near work activities such as types of light used, time spent on near work per day, uses of the cell phone. We have analyzed the data through SPSS 16.0 software and interestingly we found some significant associations among them.
