Abstract
Contact lenses have become popular with university students due to its convenience, affordability and wide availability. A study was carried out to assess the level of awareness and pattern of behavior among students in SEGi University with regards to contact lens usage. This study involved 125 SEGi University art and science stream students who are contact lens wearers, using a questionnaire. Demographic profile, level of awareness and compliance with proper contact lens care and knowledge about lens-related complications were wwwanalyzed. The majority of contact lens wearers were female (76.8%). Contact lenses were used for cosmetic reasons, therapeutic reasons and a combination of both in near equal number. 68% used monthly disposable contact lenses. Even though 89.6% of the students replied that they were aware of proper wear and care procedures, only 28% were found to be compliant with all the procedures listed. The study also found no association between academic stream and the awareness of proper wear and care of contact lenses. There was also no association between academic stream and the level of compliance to proper practices. We conclude that awareness about contact lens does not affect the practice of contact lens wear and care among SEGi University students.
