Episode 6: Quality-of-life questionnaire in keratoconus

Dr Maria Cabrera chats with Dr Himal Kandel (@kandelhimal), a Research Associate at the University of Sydney, Save Sight Institute about the importance of a quality-of-life questionnaire in keratoconus. Measuring quality of life, an abstract term, is a bit more complex than measuring length or weight. But a quality-of-life questionnaire can allow us to measure it in a scientific way to find out how keratoconus treatments and disease progression are impacting people‚Äôs quality of life.
