Abstract

Conditions affecting the eyes can be associated with impaired vision, social functioning and reduced quality of life. Unsurprisingly, patients with these problems often seek surgery to improve their vision and change their appearance. Elizabeth Jenkinson and Sadie Wickwar consider research suggesting that patients may have differing expectations of outcomes that can be achieved with surgical interventions.
