ABSTRACT:
Refractive error is one of the most common determinants of visual impairment worldwide, particularly among children, and frequently remains undiagnosed for long periods. Worldwide with refractive errors range from 800 million to 2.3 billion and 5-15% of all children are considered to have refractive errors. Proper education should be given to the children to make them vigilant towards the refractive error complications. Regular eye checkups, control over diet, control over life style etc.. Can prevent the occurrence of refractive error. The research approach adopted for this study is evaluative approach. The research design adopted for this study was one group pre test and post test design. It is a pre experimental design with no control and no randomization. The data was collected through the tool which is prepared by the investigator. The sample consists of 60 high school children in selected schools at Mysuru district. There is a significant association between pre-test knowledge score of high school children and findings of the study. A statistically significant association was between the level of knowledge and income per month of high school children. Hence the hypothesis of the study is well accepted as the knowledge levels of the high school children were increased after the structured teaching programme.
