Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of accommodative dysfunction inuniversity student at Linneaus university in Kalmar.In this study 30 subjects were recruited (24 women and 6 men) and they were all studentsat Linneaus university. The average age was 22.5±2.2 years. The oldest participant were28 years old and the youngest was 19 years old. First they had to answer a symptomsquestionnaire called CISS, then they underwent a refraction followed by a fullaccommodative examination including amplitude of accommodation, fused crosscylinder, relative accommodation and accommodative facility. The results of theaccommodative tests were compared to normal values for each test to diagnose theparticipants with accommodative dysfunction.Of the 30 participants, 11 had symptoms related to much nearwork from the CISSquestionnaire. However, only 3 participants had both symptoms and at least two abnormaltest results which gave a result of 10% with accommodative dysfunction where all 3 hadaccommodative insufficiens.The result of 10% with accommodative dysfunction is lower than what previous studieshave shown in both university students and the general population. This study does notshow that university students has more accommodative problems than the generalpopulation. All examinations in this study were done with the participants currentrefractions while the participants answered the symptoms questionnaire based on theircurrent spectacles. This could be a factor why there were more symptomatic participantsthan the number of participants with an accommodative dysfunction.
