Shortening the VF-14 visual disability questionnaire


The January 2006 issue of the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery publishes a letter from Konrad Pesudovs and David Elliott commending Pager for his article on assessing visual satisfaction and function after cataract surgery because it tackles some important and difficult issues.

However, they recommend clinicians and scientists looking to use a shortened version of the VF-14 would be well advised to consider the work of Velozo et al. and Mallinson et al. and use a Rasch analyzed shortened version of the VF-14.
