Aims And Objectives: The aim was to study the clinicodemographic profile of amblyopia and refractive error in 5-16 yrs in Kamrup
Materials And Methods: This is a cross-sectional study, carried out in Government and private schools of Kamrup
Results: Out of 12104 students screened, 845
Conclusion: As amblyopia is a preventable and treatable cause of paediatric low vision, early diagnosis and treatment of amblyopia can lead to a gross reduction in prevalence of amblyopia. Thus, school eye screening can go a long way in early detection and spreading awareness to help reduce prevalence of uncorrected refractive error and amblyopia, , hence reducing childhood blindness.
