Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Edema Quality-of-Life Item Banks: Development and Initial Evaluation Using Computerized Adaptive Testing.

The purpose of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME) quality-of-life (QoL) item banks and determine the utility of the final calibrated item banks by simulating a computerized adaptive testing (CAT) application.

Association Between the Severity of Diabetic Retinopathy and Falls in an Asian Population With Diabetes: The Singapore Epidemiology of Eye Diseases Study.

The presence and severity of diabetic retinopathy (DR) may contribute to the risk of falling in persons with diabetes, but evidence is currently equivocal.

Association Between Perceived Barriers to Diabetes Self-management and Diabetic Retinopathy in Asian Patients With Type 2 Diabetes.

A patient’s perceived barriers to diabetes self-management (DSM) may affect his or her risk of diabetic retinopathy (DR); however, few studies have examined this association.

Inter-relationship between visual symptoms, activity limitation and psychological functioning in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

We explored the direct and indirect impact of restrictions in daily living activities on the relationship between perceived visual symptoms associated with diabetic retinopathy (DR) and psychological functioning.

Combined poor diabetes control indicators are associated with higher risks of diabetic retinopathy and macular edema than poor glycemic control alone.

To examine the association of individual and combined indicators of diabetes control with diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema.

Change in vision-related quality of life and influencing factors in Asians receiving treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration.

To assess the change in vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) after treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) and factors influencing this change in an Asian population.

Incidence and risk factors of symptomatic dry eye disease in Asian Malays from the Singapore Malay Eye Study.

To evaluate the incidence of symptomatic dry eye disease (SDED) and associated risk factors in a well-characterized cohort of ethnic Malays in Singapore.

Cumulative incidence and risk factors of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in a Singaporean Malay cohort.

The aim of this work was to determine the cumulative incidence and independent risk factors of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in a well-characterized cohort of Malays in Singapore.

Ethnic Differences in the Association Between Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Vision-Specific Functioning.

Understanding the link between ethnicity and health is critical to making appropriate public policy decisions. Few population-level data are available about this connection, however, including the influence of ethnicity on the association between age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and vision-specific functioning (VSF).

Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Impact of Undiagnosed Visually Significant Cataract: The Singapore Epidemiology of Eye Diseases Study.

To determine the prevalence, risk factors, and impact of undiagnosed visually significant cataract in an Asian population.

Vision-Related Quality of Life Outcomes in the BEVORDEX Study: A Clinical Trial Comparing Ozurdex Sustained Release Dexamethasone Intravitreal Implant and Bevacizumab Treatment for Diabetic Macular Edema.

To determine the patient-centered effectiveness of treatment with the slow-release dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX implant) and intravitreal bevacizumab using the Impact of Vision Impairment Questionnaire (IVI), a vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) measure, in patients with visual impairment secondary to center-involving diabetic macular edema (DME).

Association of Changes in Visual Acuity With Vision-Specific Functioning in the Singapore Malay Eye Study.

Longitudinal population-based data on the effect of vision loss on vision-specific functioning (VSF) are scarce, particularly in Asian populations.

Differential Impact of Unilateral and Bilateral Classifications of Diabetic Retinopathy and Diabetic Macular Edema on Vision-Related Quality of Life.

To evaluate and compare the impact of unilateral better-eye and bilateral categorizations of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME) on vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2DM).

Vision impairment and major eye diseases reduce vision-specific emotional well-being in a Chinese population.

To assess the relationship between vision impairment (VI) and major eye diseases, with vision-specific emotional well-being in a Chinese population.

Reducing respondent burden: validation of the Brief Impact of Vision Impairment questionnaire.

To develop a psychometrically sound and valid Brief Impact of Vision Impairment (IVI) questionnaire.

Item Banking Enables Stand-Alone Measurement of Driving Ability.

To explore whether large item sets, as used in item banking, enable important latent traits, such as driving, to form stand-alone measures.

The impact of typical neovascular age-related macular degeneration and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy on vision-related quality of life in Asian patients.

To determine the impact of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) on vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) in an Asian population.

Association of Vision Impairment and Major Eye Diseases With Mobility and Independence in a Chinese Population.

Mobility limitations arising from vision impairment (VI) can result in loss of independence and reduced quality of life. However, few data are available on the association between VI and mobility limitations at a population-based level, particularly in Asian populations.

Association Between Diabetes-Related Eye Complications and Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression.

This study is needed to clarify inconsistent findings regarding the association between diabetes-related eye complications and psychological well-being.

Late referral for diabetic retinopathy screening in general practice.

Velocity of Visual Field Progression Implicated in Falls.

Developing a Very Low Vision Orientation and Mobility Test Battery (O&M-VLV).

This study aimed to determine the feasibility of an assessment of vision-related orientation and mobility (O&M) tasks in persons with severe vision loss. These tasks may be used for future low vision rehabilitation clinical assessments or as outcome measures in vision restoration trials.

What is the best measure for assessing diabetes distress? A comparison of the Problem Areas in Diabetes and Diabetes Distress Scale: results from Diabetes MILES-Australia.

This study used Rasch analysis to examine the psychometric validity of the Diabetes Distress Scale and the Problem Areas in Diabetes scale to assess diabetes distress in 3338 adults with diabetes (1609 completed the Problem Areas in Diabetes scale ( n = 675 type 1 diabetes; n = 934 type 2 diabetes) and 1705 completed the Diabetes Distress Scale ( n = 693 type 1 diabetes; n = 1012 type 2 diabetes)). While criterion and convergent validity were good, Rasch analysis revealed suboptimal precision and targeting, and item misfit. Unresolvable multidimensionality within the Diabetes Distress Scale suggests a total score should be avoided, while suboptimal precision suggests that the Physician-related and Interpersonal distress subscales should be used cautiously.
