Abstract

Background: Refractive error can be associated with nutrition status. This study aim to investigate the associations between anthropometric parameters and dietary factors in refractive error.
Material and Methods: Samples utilized were 252 eyes from 127 students between 13-17 years of age (mean 15 ± 0.67 y.o.). Seventy-five subjects were males and 52 were females. Subjects underwent visual acuity examination, noncycloplegic refraction, measurement of height and weight and each student was interviewed and filled out the semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (SQ-FFQ) to obtain daily nutrient intake.
Results: There was no significant association between age, weight, height, BMI and nutrient intake from SQ-FFQ (energy, protein, fat, carbohydrates, fibers, PUFA, cholesterol, vitamin A, carotene, vitamin E, vitamins B1, B2 and B6, folate, vitamin C, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and zinc) with SE (r < 0.2, p > 0.005).
Conclusion: In this study, there were no significant associations between anthropometric parameters and dietary factors with refractive error.
