Abstract

ABSTRACT

The National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire 25 (NEI-VFQ-25) is the most commonly used patient-reported outcome measure to assess vision-related quality of life in patients with glaucoma. Glaucoma negatively affects the composite and several NEI-VFQ subscale scores; this effect is correlated with the severity of glaucomatous visual field loss. Contrast sensitivity, glare, and dark adaptation are potential items that could be added to the NEI-VFQ to make it more responsive to changes in vision-related quality of life in patients with glaucoma.
