KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Uncorrected refractive errors can give rise to considerable visual impairment which may become permanent.

  • Measurements of visual acuity and ocular refraction are, therefore, important.

  • A study of visual acuity helps in the assessment of the requirements for ophthalmic care in an entire community.

  • The incidence of impaired vision due to refractive errors among young college students in Calcutta was studied during 1970–71.
