Description of Development and Validation of a Short-Form Adaptation of the Age-Related Vision Loss Scale: The AVL12



Abstract: This article describes the development and evaluation of a short form of the 24-item Adaptation to Age-Related Vision Loss (AVL) scale. The evaluation provided evidence of the reliability and validity of the short form (the AVL12), for significant interindividual differences at the baseline and for individual-level change in AVL scores over time. Thus, the AVL12 maintains strong psychometric properties and is a shorter, more efficient measure for assessing adaptation to age-related vision loss in both research and clinical settings.
