Utility and Uncorrected Refractive Error – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate utility (a preference-based quality of life [QoL] measure) associated with uncorrected refractive error (URE).Design: Cross-sectional study.Participants: A cohort of 341 consecutive patients 40 to 65 years of age with refractive error and no ocular disease impairing vision worse than 20/25 (0.1 logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution [logMAR] units) in the better eye. Without vision correction, 30 had no vision impairment, 65 had only distance vision impairment (DVI), 97 had only near vision impairment (NVI), 112 had moderate amounts of both distance and near vision impairment (DNVI), and 37 had severe impairment (distance or near worse (Read more...)
