Materials and Methods: A spot survey was carried out on subjects using computer in institutes, colleges and banks. A questionnaire was used and all filled proformas were collected and checked for the response.
Result: Ocular symptoms are very common among the computer users with a prevalence of 82.46%. There is no remarkable sex disparity in prevalence of symptoms. It may vary from being occasional to routine. The presbyopic persons are more symptomatic, the prevalence of symptoms in them is 88.96% in comparison to 81.48% of pre-presbyopic persons. Eyestrain is the most frequently reported symptom by the computer users and it affects 61.67% subjects. Occasional double vision is the least reported symptom and it affects 8.67% subjects.
