Description of Optimism, Social Comparisons, and Coping with Vision Loss in Israel

This study of 90 adults (aged 55–80) who lost their vision assessed their dispositional optimism, social comparisons, coping strategies, and well-being. The findings suggest that optimism and positive social comparisons play an important role in stimulating the motivation to cope adaptively with vision loss and that enhancing optimism and social comparisons may facilitate the rehabilitation of persons who are legally blind.
