Paper Abstract

In this study we use the Functional Vision Screening Questionnaire (FVSQ) to identify functional indicators of visual problems among a sample of older people living in nursing homes. An important proportion of residents under study have difficulties on the performance of distance and near vision tasks. We have found a high proportion of blanks in several items of the FVSQ that seems to suggest the need to adapt the functional indicators of FVSQ to the vision-dependent daily activities of our residents.
