Material and Methods: 620 (204 Tribal and 416 Non tribal) people residing in a slum area of Jagdalpur were interviewed and data thus collected were tabulated and analyzed. Statistical analysis Expressed in simple: proportion s. Findings: 39.83 % male tribal knew in comparison to their female 32.55 % counterparts about scientific cause of eye problems while among non tribals less proportion of males in comparison to their female counter parts scientific cause. Regarding treatment higher proportion of non tribal in comparison to their counter parts tribal took treatment. Television was the most common source of information in both the community. Interpretation: The findings of the present study were more or less similar to the findings of the other studies conducted across the globe by different authors.
