Abstract [sv]

I nuläget finns det begränsat med forskning hur det går för de personer som opererar bort ett öga. Detta kan medföra att ögonsjuksköterskan ger otillräcklig information till patient och anhöriga i samband med att det är aktuellt att bära protes. Därför var det av intresse att undersöka den synrelaterade livskvaliteten hos personer som genomgått en ögonamputation. Syftet var att belysa synrelaterad livskvalitet hos personer som genomgått en ögonamputation och har en ögonprotes. Studien är en tvärsnittsstudie med deskriptiv design. Datainsamlingen omfattade frågeformuläret NEI-VFQ-25 med tilläggsfrågor, där deltagarna var vuxna personer som genomgått en ögonamputation de senaste fem åren. Resultatet visade att deltagarna hade lägre synrelaterad livskvalitet än personer i kontrollgruppen från H70-studien 2014/2015 med och utan påverkan på synförmågan. Mest besvär hade deltagarna med sidoseende och aktiviteter både på nära och långt håll. Resultatet av studien kan ge ögonsjuksköterskan fördjupad kunskap som kan användas i personcentrerad vård som stöd för att uppmuntra personen som genomgått en ögon amputation och att på bästa sätt hantera sin nya livssituation. Forskning omfattande synrelaterad livskvalitet hos samtliga vuxna personer i Sverige som genomgått en ögonamputation och har ögonprotes vore av intresse, eftersom resultatet baseras på en grupp patienter vid en ögonklinik.

Abstract [en]

At the moment there is little research about the outcome of people who have had an eye surgically removed. This may result in an ophthalmic nurse giving insufficient information to patients and relatives. Therefore, it would be interesting to investigate the vision related quality of life in relation to the eyesight of persons who have undergone an eye amputation. The purpose was to illustrate the vision related quality of life of people who have been subject to an eye amputation and have an eye prothesis. The study is a cross-sectional study with a descriptive design. The data collection was conducted using the questionnaire NEI-VFQ-25 together with supplementary questions which was sent to adults who have undergone an eye amputation in the last five years. The results showed that eye amputees had lower vision-related quality of life than participants in a control group from the H70 study 2014/2015 with and without visual symptoms. The biggest inconvenience for the participants was peripheral vision and both near activities and distance activities. The results of the study can provide the ophthalmic nurse with a deeper knowledge to be used working with personcentered care and provide thourough information to support persons how has went through an eye amputation to manage their new life situation. Further research on eye amputees vision-related quality of life nationally is needed because the result is based on a limited study group.
