ABSTRACT Objetivo: Devido à perda visual que acarreta, a catarata pode impedir a realização de atividades cotidianas, influindo assim na qualidade de vida dos indivíduos afetados. Este trabalho tem como objetivo avaliar a aplicabilidade de questionário para avaliação da qualidade de vida de indivíduos portadores de catarata e testar a sua responsividade e confiabilidade. Métodos: Foram entrevistados 30 pacientes portadores de catarata com indicação cirúrgica. Utilizou-se questionário específico adaptado, sendo a mesma entrevista realizada duas vezes, com intervalo de uma hora. Resultados: Todas as questões tiveram mais de 80% de resposta sem que o entrevistador precisasse repetir a pergunta. A análise da consistência mostrou que apenas um paciente respondeu de forma discrepante quatro questões. Conclusão: O questionário adaptado pôde ser aplicado em grupo populacional de baixa escolaridade, representando instrumento válido para avaliação da qualidade de vida de pacientes com catarata.

    ABSTRACT: To study the quality of life, treatment outcomes, and satisfaction in patients who have undergone cataract surgery Methods: This comparative case series study was conducted at the Ophthalmology Service of the Bettina Ferro de Souza University Hospital, Belém, Pará, Brazil. Totally, 60 patients with cataract were included; 50% underwent conventional extracapsular cataract extraction (ECEE) and 50% underwent cataract extraction by phacoemulsification (PHACO). Patients were interviewed using the Visual Function 14 (VF-14) questionnaire to determine the quality of life before and 30 days after surgery. The results of ophthalmological examination were recorded in the patients' files and were available throughout this study. One-way ANOVA, Tukey's post-hoc comparison, and the sign test were used for statistical analyses.

    ABSTRACT: Identify ideal profiles in patients undergoing to photorefractive laser surgery with the aid of an automated pupillometry and psychometric analysis of patients with visual function questionnaire (VQF 25). Seventy-seven patients undergoing photorefractive laser surgery laser (LASIK) were analyzed with the aid of an automated digital pupillometer based on an infrared camera coupled to the optical head of a videokeratography system. Patients underwent complete ophthalmic evaluation and documentation of the pupillary behavior under different intensities of illumination, simulating situations of everyday life. Visual quality function questionnaire, translated to Portuguese was assessed. All patients, regardless of pupillary change under varying conditions of illumination (scotopic, mesopic and photopic) showed improvement in all sub-groups of the VQF 25. Pupil diameter was not the primary determinant of patients' visual satisfaction. Despite digital pupillometer has proven to be a useful tool in documenting and understanding of pupil behavior, a set of factors such as psycho-social profile, preoperative ametropy and final residual ametropy, contributed decisively to determine the degree of satisfaction of patients undergoing LASIK.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: This study has two objectives: identify the chronic pain belief's instruments adapted to the Portuguese language and to revise their psychometric properties. Method: The strategy consisted in three stages: 1) a systematic search strategy was developed to identify papers related to measurement chronic pain beliefs; 2) the instruments adapted to the Portuguese language were selected; 3) the psychometric properties of these instruments were analyzed. Results: The following instruments were found in the SciELO and Periódicos Capes data base. Five instruments were identifi ed: Escala de Autoefi cácia para Dor Crônica (AEDC), Escala de Pensamentos Catastróficos sobre Dor, Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire – Brasil (FABQ-Brasil), Inventário de Atitudes frente à Dor – versão reduzida (IAD-Breve) and Inventário de Atitudes frente à Dor – profi ssionais (IAD-Profi ssionais). Values of reliability and validity ranged from moderate to good. Conclusion: All the adapted instruments presented moderate or good psychometric properties; there are tools available by researcher and health care practitioners’ to measure pain beliefs.
