Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. Utility of EyeFitness telerehabilitation [6 months]

    The aim of this study is to evaluate the utility of the EyeFitness telerehabilitation software and the adherence of patients to the treatment. In order to evaluate the utility of the software the primary outcome measures were PSSUQ Version 3 scores defined as Overall, System Usefulness (Sysuse), Information Quality (Infoqual), Interface Quality (Iterqual).

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Effect of treatment [6 months]

    The secondary outcome measures selected for the effectiveness analysis were distance Best Corrected Visual Acuity, MNRead reading acuity, reading speed (words per minute), contrast sensitivity (at Pelli - Robson charts) and fixation stability according to Microperimeter exame classification.
