Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:

To investigate the effects of psychosocial interventions versus no intervention on quality of life and psychosocial outcomes in adults undergoing strabismus surgery. The primary objective is to assess whether patients who have taken part in a psychosocial intervention prior to their strabismus surgery report significantly improved quality of life compared to those who receive standard care, i.e. strabismus surgery alone. The secondary outcome measures will include anxiety, depression, social anxiety and social avoidance, as well as degree of success in terms of surgical outcome.
