ABSTRACT

Background: Cataract is the leading cause of blindness affecting more than 10.8 million patients in the year 2010. Cataract surgery is the most cost-effective treatment for this condition. It's believed that the quality of life is significantly improved after the surgery. Aim: to investigate the effect of cataract surgery on patients' quality of life in Jazan, Saudi Arabia in addition to identifying the influencing factors. Method: This cross-sectional observational study included 225 adult patients who underwent cataract surgery in the ophthalmology clinic of Prince Mohammed Bin Nasser Hospital, Jazan, Saudi Arabia. Data was collected using a designed self-administered questionnaire. Results: Male patients constituted two-thirds of the study population (68.0%). More than one-half of the patients (59.1%) had the surgery done in the two eyes. The majority of patients (80.0%) said that their vision was improved after having the surgery, 79.6% said that they would advise other to undergo surgery, 85.8% said that their daily life was recovered after having the surgery and 84.4% said that their psychological status was improved after the surgery. Male gender (p<0.001) and using sunglasses (p=0.001) were significantly associated with better quality of life while residency (p=0.245), diabetes (p=0.348) and hypertension (p=0.999) showed no effect on the quality of life. Conclusion: Cataract surgery can enhance the quality of life of patients undergoing surgery. Male gender and using sunglasses have a significant beneficial effect while diabetes, hypertension, and residency have not significant effect on the quality of life.
