HIDA, Wilson Takashi et al. Development and validation of quality of life questionnaire in pseudophakic patients in portuguese. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2013, vol.72, n.6, pp.388-395. ISSN 0034-7280.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-72802013000600007.

PURPOSE: Development and validation of quality of life questionnaire in pseudophakic patients in Portuguese. METHODS: The modified Cataract TyPESpecification questionnaire was specifically developed to assess quality of life after cataract surgery, functional status evaluated with 10 items and contains 18 questions. All questions were applied by a single examiner, with the goal of graduating visual satisfaction from 0 to 10 (0 means very dissatisfied, 5 neutral, 10 very satisfied).This prospective comparative study included 142 eyes of 71 patients in Sao Paulo University. The ophthalmologic evaluation performed included near, intermediate and distance corrected and uncorrected visual acuity and quality of life questionaire. The minimum follow-up was 6 months. RESULTS: The mean age of patients was 60.7± 6.6 years in theTecnis®MF, 63.1 ±4.4 years in-groupRestor®63.7±4.2 years in-group SN60AT/SN60WF. Uncorrected and distance-corrected near visual acuity were statistically higher in theRestor® and Tecnis® groups compared to the SN60AT/SN60WF group (p<0.001). There were no statistical differences between groups comparing uncorrected and best-corrected distance visual acuity (p=0.56). Satisfaction questionnaire showed high glasses independence fortheTecnis®MF (9.3 /10) and Restor® (8.7 /10), but with more unsatisfied of halos (18.8% Restor®, Tecnis®21, 7%) and glare (Restor® 25%;Tecnis®26.1%) than the group SN60AT/SN60WF. CONCLUSION: Cataract patients who received multifocal (Restor®; Tecnis®MF) IOLs at time of surgery obtained better uncorrected and distance corrected near visual acuity and reported better overall vision, less limitation in visual function, less spectacle dependency, and more glare or halo than those who received monofocal (SN60AT; SN60WF) IOLs. Cataract TyPESpecification questionnaire was a strong predictor of change in patient satisfaction caused by cataract surgery.
