To evaluate the efficacy of online learning and explore the impact of long-term use of electronic products on facial skin as well as eyes. A cross-sectional survey was conducted to 180 sophomores in Xi'an Jiaotong University by cluster random sampling from September to October 2021. The questionnaire covering study condition, skin lesion and Ocular Surface Disease Index. χ2 test was used to compare the facial skin condition among different groups, and spearman correlation test was used to test the correlation of rank data. During online education, students' learning pressure is reduced, their autonomy is improved, and the learning efficiency is reduced. There were differences in the incidence of facial itching and papules among different groups. Duration of use of electronic products was positively correlated with the facial itching, with an r value of 0.231 (P<0.05); the proportion of pigmentation in non-blue light protection groups (12.8%) was higher than that in blue light protection groups (1.7%), the difference was statistically significant (χ2=8.384, P<0.05). The prevalence of dry eye among college students is 66.7%, and the proportion of moderate to severe dry eye is 34.5%. The study autonomy has been improved during online teaching. Long-term use of electronic products and no blue light protection have an impact on facial skin. Students should enhance the knowledge of skin-care and eye-care and develop better habits.
Key words:    online learning    facial skin    dry eye    college students
