Abstract: Objective To determine the relationship between the increase body mass index with Axial Length and Anterior Chamber Depth in patients with refractive errors. Method This is an observational cross-sectional study. A total sample of 96 subjects were included.42 people with Excess Body Mass Index and 54 people with Normal Body Mass Index. Each patient was measured height, weight, vision with the Snellen Chart and corrected by Trial Lens. The axial length and anterior chamber depth measured by Biometry A-scan AL-100. Results The number of patients with Normal Body Mass Index experiencing Emmetropia were 60 %, Myopia were 57.1 %, Astigmatism Myopia ODS were 50 %, and those with Astigmatism Myopia Compound ODS were 50 %. The number of patients with Excess Body Mass Index experiencing Emmetropia were 40 %, Myopia ODS were 42.9 %, Myopia ODS were 50 %, Myopia OS were 100 %, and Astigmatism Myopia Myopia Compund OD + OS were 50 %. Conclusions There is no relationship between the increasing of Body Mass Index with Axial Length and Anterior Chamber Depth in patients with refractive errors.
