    Author(s): Ana Carolina Pasquini Raiza and Regina Cele Silveira Seixas

    Aim of the study: To determine the impact of 3D Virtual Reality on the adherence of patients to three months of treatment for glaucoma. Materials and methods: Randomized, single-blind clinical trial. Seventy patients were randomized to receive information about glaucoma via 3D Virtual Reality (3D group, 35 patients) or via printed material (control group, 35 patients). The mean measurement of both eyes from all patients was used to evaluate outcomes. The randomization was stratified to balance the number of patients using monotherapy or polytherapy between the groups. At the first appointment, patients in the 3D Virtual Reality group watched a 3D video about glaucoma; patients in the control group received information via printed material. The primary outcome measures were Intraocular Pressure (I.. View More»
