Speaker: Professor David Crabb, City University
Topic: Age related eye disease – through the eyes of the patient
Description: The benchmark for a new treatment success in a clinical trial in age related eye disease like glaucoma and AMD should really be aligned to measurable changes that affect patient’s everyday life rather than imperceptible changes on a clinical chart. Yet little is known about how these conditions really affect patients’ abilities to perform everyday visual tasks. This talk will spotlight our attempts to relate measurements taken in the clinic to at least an estimate of what patients visually ‘can’ and ‘cannot do’. One way to do this is to measure patient performance in tasks in a lab setting. Another way is to ask patients themselves. The latter can be revealing and demystify views about how patients perceive the world.
