Key PointsQuestionWhat clinical factors are associated with reduced health-related quality of life in medically and surgically treated patients with glaucoma? FindingsIn this cohort study, reduced health-related quality of life was associated with worse diplopia, lower mean deviation on visual field testing, poor vision, and younger age. Previous glaucoma drainage device surgery was associated with poorer health-related quality of life on Adult Strabismus–20 domains compared with trabeculectomy or medical treatment. MeaningThese findings suggest patients with glaucoma should be assessed for diplopia before and after surgery, given the negative effect of diplopia on health-related quality of life, and that potential psychosocial effects of glaucoma drainage devices should be discussed during preoperative counseling.
