Vision-related quality of life in children with glaucoma.
Although reporting vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) outcomes has become increasingly common in adult glaucoma studies, little is known about the influence of disease severity, medication burden, and surgical experience on the quality of life of children with glaucoma. We tested the feasibility of administering a self-reported VRQoL instrument and describe the VRQoL in children with glaucoma. Better VRQoL was correlated with higher visual acuity in the better-seeing eye but not the number of surgeries the child had undergone or the number of prescribed eyedrops.
