Dr Samreen Arif, Dr Sanjay Shrivastava

Abstract :

 Background:

 The unprecedented mortality and morbidity due to Bhopal gas tragedy demanded the need for long term monitoring of toxic gas exposed population and use of appropriate methods of investigation for characterization of personal exposure and accident analysis to determine the possible elements of the toxic gas exposure.

Method:

Case control study to evaluate and compare ocular morbidity in toxic gas exposed and non exposed population

Conclusion:

 As compared to previous studies there is increase in incidence of cataract in both case and control group which can be attributed to more number of inmates in older age group and decreased incidence of ocular surface disorder can be attributed to better living conditions, awareness, betters sanitation and better provision of health services. Increased incidence of hypertensive and diabetic retinopathy in case group as compared to previous studies correspond to long duration of systemic diseases and increase life expectancy of individuals.
