... P-value less than 0.05 was statistically significant. Dry eye was assessed based on OSDI where an OSDI score of 0-12 represents a nondry eye; an OSDI score of 13-22 represents a mild dry eye; an OSDI score of 23-32 represents a moderate dry eye; an OSDI score of >32 represents a severe dry eye [14]. Descriptive analysis based on the frequency and percent distribution was done for all variables, including contact lens user's bio-demographic data, lens use frequency, and history of eye diseases. ...
