We evaluated the impact of different eye conditions on children, using the Pediatric Eye Questionnaires (PedEyeQ) to assess eye-related quality of life (ER-QOL) and functional vision.
370 Children (5-11 years) with a range of eye conditions and 80 visually normal controls were enrolled. Children completed the Child PedEyeQ (functional vision, bothered by eyes/vision, social, and frustration/worry domains) and parents completed Proxy PedEyeQ (same domains as child plus an eye care domain.) PedEyeQ domains were Rasch-scored from 0-100 (lower scores indicate greater impact) and median scores plus interquartile ranges calculated.
Median (interquartile ranges) Child PedEyeQ and Proxy PedEyeQ domain scores are reported in the table below. Across a wide range of pediatric eye conditions, the PedEyeQ is sensitive to deficits in ER-QOL and functional vision.
Both Child PedEyeQ and Proxy PedEyeQ are useful for clinical practice and as outcome measures in clinical trials across the spectrum of pediatric eye conditions.
