Depression and experience of vision loss in group of adults in rehabilitation setting: Mixed-methods pilot study

Hugo Senra, PhD, et al.

This study contributes to the understanding of depression in adults with irreversible vision loss. The goal was to provide new insights into the relationship between young and middle-aged adults– experiences of vision loss and depression. Such insights could explain why some patients with vision loss are more likely to be depressed and have more problems coping. The current findings highlight the potential role of patients– self-awareness of impairment, perceived social support, and length of rehabilitation in depression after vision loss. It is suggested that emotionfocused coping might also be adaptive, not just a sign of maladjustment as other research has shown.
