Discrepancies in the concordance of self-reported vision status and visual acuity in the salisbury eye evaluation study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: To examine the association between self-rated vision and distance visual acuity by race and other factors. Design: Cross-sectional analysis within a longitudinal, population-based cohort study. Participants and Controls: Two thousand five hundred twenty individuals, 65 to 84 years of age, including 666 black participants and 1854 white participants. Methods: All participants reported their self-rated vision score. Binocular distance visual acuity was assessed. Based on the level of visual acuity and the self-reported vision score, participants were placed into concordant and discrepant groups. Main Outcome Measures: Multinomial logistic regression models were used to examine the characteristics associated with concordant and discrepant groups. Results: Black participants were more likely to be represented in the discordant group that reported good vision but had acuity worse than 20/40. In the multivariate analysis, a per-year decrement in years of education received increased the odds of being in both discrepant groups, one that reported good vision but had a visual acuity worse than 20/40 (odds ratio, 1.21; P
