Abstract:

The present study designed to investigate the prevalence of myopia and also to evaluate the related complications in Medical students of SSSMC&RI, Ammapettai. The present study was carried on 150 MBBS students of  SSSMC & RI. The increasing trend of myopia has been observed among Medicos through self administered questionnaire form and Diopters were obtained based on American optometric association guidelines. This study  proved that the occurrence of myopia was due to  familial, environmental and unhealthy dietary patterns among Medical students. Out of 150 students, 136 students showed positive results for familial history, 92 students for environmental history, where as 57 students presented with past ocular problem, from which 45 students were under medications. The  prevalence rate of myopia was higher in female students when compared with the male students.  High incidence and progression of myopia was highly associated with environmental factors such as computers, video games, television, mobile phones and also the parenteral factors.  To overcome this problem, regular physical activity and eye exercises are mandatory for the Medicos which will help to control their refractive error, which may avoid the complications of myopia.
