No statistically significant difference was found gender and age wise amongst 3 groups. In Group A, mean age was 29.35 ±5.5, in Group B it was 30.17 ±5.51 and in Group C it was 30.28 ±5.52). On the basis of OSDI Questionnaire, Schirmer’s test and tear film break up time (TFBUT), severity of dry eye was assessed.
Results: With OSDI Questionnaire mild to moderate dry eye was found in (GR A 12% < GR> Conclusion: OSDI questionnaire combined with Schirmer’s test and TFBUT is a useful tool to assess dry eye disease.
