Validity of the Adaptation to Age-related Vision Loss Scale in an Australian Cataract Population
(Spanish Council of Optometry, 2009)
Purpose: The Adaptation to Age-related Vision Loss (AVL) scale was developed to measure the adjustment of older adults who are adapting to late-life vision loss. The purpose of this study was to assess whether the AVL scale ...
Repeatability of corneal first-surface wavefront aberrations measured with Pentacam corneal topography [Post print]
PURPOSE: To assess the repeatability of corneal wavefront aberrations derived from Pentacam (Oculus) corneal topography. SETTING: Flinders Eye Centre, Flinders Medical Centre, Bedford Park, South Australia, Australia. ...
Patient-centred measurement in ophthalmology - a paradigm shift
(BioMed Central - http://www.biomedcentral.com, 2006-06)
Ophthalmologists and researchers in ophthalmology understand what a rapidly evolving field ophthalmology is, and that to conduct good research it is essential to use the latest and best methods. In outcomes research, one ...
Effect of cataract surgery incision location and intraocular lens type on ocular aberrations. [Post print]
PURPOSE: To determine whether Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensing detects differences in optical performance in vivo between poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and foldable acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs) and between clear ...
Refractive Status and Vision Profile: evaluation of psychometric properties and comparison of Rasch and summated Likert-scaling. [Post-print]
The psychometric properties of the Refractive Status and Vision Profile (RSVP) questionnaire were evaluated using Rasch analysis. Ninety-one myopic patients from a refractive surgery clinic and general optometric practice ...
Shortening the VF-14 visual disability questionnaire.[comment]. [Post print]
Letter commenting on Pager, Chet K. "Assessment of visual satisfaction and function after cataract surgery." J Cataract Refract Surg. 2004 Dec;30(12):2510-6; PMID: 15617917
Refractive error changes in cortical, nuclear, and posterior subcapsular cataracts
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2003-08)
AIMS: To determine the effect of the three main morphological types of cataract on refractive error. METHODS: Data were prospectively collected from 77 subjects (age 67 (SD 8) years) with one morphological type of cataract. ...
The usefulness of Vistech and FACT contrast sensitivity charts for cataract and refractive surgery outcomes research
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2004-01)
AIM: To investigate the repeatability and sensitivity of two commonly used sine wave patch charts for contrast sensitivity (CS) measurement in cataract and refractive surgery outcomes. METHODS: The Vistech CS chart and its ...
Changes in quality of life after laser in situ keratomileusis for myopia [Post print]
PURPOSE: To measure quality of life (QoL) outcome in prepresbyopic myopic patients having laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) refractive surgery using the Quality of Life Impact of Refractive Correction (QIRC) questionnaire ...
Comparison of autologous serum eye drops with conventional therapy in a randomised controlled crossover trial for ocular surface disease
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2004-05)
AIMS: To evaluate the efficacy of 50% autologous serum drops against conventional treatment in ocular surface disorders refractory to normal treatments in a prospective randomised crossover trial. METHOD: Patients fulfilling ...
