Background. As a part of preventive medical examination 488 senior students were surveyed in KrasSMU to identify the syndrome of “dry eye” (DES).
Methods. Диагностику DES diagnostics was conducted with the help of OSDI questionnaire, biomicroscopy, TBUT, Schirmer’s test and L. Johns’s test.
Results. Symptoms of the syndrome reported in 34.4 %, clinical signs of mild and medium severity in 12,5 % cases. Among the main risk factors for chronic diseases DES appeared digestive tract, sinusitis, use of contact lenses, or a combination of several factors.
Conclusions. The high proportion with delitescent disease progress of DES (22.4 %) determines the necessity of comprehensive system developing (including internal medicine specialists) for the early diagnosis of chronic diseases and performance status correction at preclinical stage of DES developing in this group of students.
