Changes in health-related quality of life 1 year following strabismus surgery


Changes in health-related quality of life 1 year following strabismus surgery

....For patients who became partial success (n=18) or failure (n=4) at 1 year there was a numerical decrease in scores at 1 year.....

Comments:If your surgery was a success your reported quality of life improved, however if there was only a partial success or outright failure your quality of life took a nose dive. A review of the literature (or search this blog)  will show that about 1/3 of those who have strabismus surgery fail (need another surgery). If 33% of patients are strabismus surgery failures are they then suffering a decrease in their quality of life as well? DM
