One of the most common problems in children is refractive error, which can lead to blindness. Although refractive errors cannot be prevented, they can be detected early with a routine eye exam and fixed with glasses, surgery, or corrective lenses. The current study's objectives were to determine the prevalence of refractive errors in association with watching television among school-age children presenting at Ophthalmology OPD at Tertiary Care Hospital and schools of Badnapur Taluka. A total of 300 kids were randomly selected to find out how common refractive error is in the research population.
