(March 6, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From California - Glaucoma patients with faster binocular visual loss have worse quality of life, according to a report published in JAMA Ophthalmology. Researchers studied nearly 400 glaucoma patients taking part in two long-term studies. Participants were followed for a mean of 7 years, and had their integrated binocular visual field loss and vision-related quality of life measured during the study period. Results showed that ratres of BVF change were strongly associated with abnormalities in vision-related quality of life, even after accounting confounding variables.
