Abstract

The knowledge and awareness on contact lens care can enhance the positive attitude of the wearers and reduce related complications. This study aimed to investigate the perceptions of contact lens use and care of university students with different backgrounds. A questionnaire regarding the perception and practice of contact lens use was online distributed. The perception of contact lens use as an optical device between spectacle and contact lens was statistically significant (p<0.05). However, there was no significant difference between the perception and awareness of two groups (p>0.05). Regardless of educational field background, all contact lens wearers have the same behavioural assessment of contact lens awareness.

Keywords: behaviour, contact lens usage, knowledge, awareness.
