Abstract PURPOSE: To assess the health-related quality of life in blepharoptosis patients and the impact after surgical management on their quality of life. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with congenital or acquired blepharoptosis completed a questionnaire which was adapted from the Visual Function Questionnaire (VFQ), before and after surgical management. RESULTS: Mean preoperative score was 74 and mean postoperative score was 81 and there was a statistically significant difference between mean pre- and postoperative scores of 7 (p=0.004). There was a statistically significant difference only for the mental health subdomain (p=0.001) in the evaluation of the questions (alpha=0.002) and subdomains (alpha=0.004). CONCLUSION: The quality of life in blepharoptosis patients was significantly better after surgical management in the assessment using the VFQ. The outcomes emphasize the need for of using questionnaires designed specifically for this disease.

OBJETIVO: Avaliar a qualidade de vida dos portadores de blefaroptose e o impacto da correção cirúrgica sobre os mesmos. MÉTODOS: Foram aplicados questionários adaptados do Visual Function Questionnaire (VFQ) antes e após tratamento cirúrgico em 21 pacientes com blefaroptose congênita ou adquirida. RESULTADOS: A pontuação média dos pacientes, no pré-operatório, foi de 74 e, no pós-operatório, 81 e diferença pré e pós-cirurgia estatisticamente significante de 7 (p=0,004). Na avaliação das questões (alfa=0,002) e subdomínios (alfa=0,004) houve diferença estatisticamente significante apenas para o subdomínio saúde mental (p=0,001). CONCLUSÃO: A qualidade de vida dos pacientes com blefaroptose apresentou melhora significante após a intervenção cirúrgica na avaliação com o VFQ. Os resultados reforçam a necessidade do uso de questionários elaborados especificamente para esta doença.
