Description of Self-image of Elderly Persons before and after Cataract Surgery



Abstract: To examine the effect of poor vision on self-image, the research reported here studied 100 elderly persons' self-images before and after cataract surgery. Before the surgery, the subjects' vision was poor, and the subjects felt tense, anxious, and lacking in energy, although their self-images were mainly positive. After surgery restored their vision, the subjects' self-images were more positive, and these elderly people were now more relaxed and energetic and less anxious.
