Psychosocial adjustment to age-related macular degeneration
This article reports on a study of the psychosocial adjustment to age-related macular degeneration of 30 elderly persons by comparing the responses of subjects with this condition to those from age- and sex-matched controls on four psychosocial scales: life satisfaction, daily hassles, social support, and self-esteem. The subjects with the condition reported significantly poorer life satisfaction and greater stress, perhaps as a result of poor social support.
