Exploring Participation in Individuals with Glaucoma

Participation is involvement in life situations and a major construct of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health framework. A primary goal of occupational therapy is to promote health through participation in meaningful roles and routines individuals need to do or want to do. Glaucoma is a progressive, chronic optic neuropathy and a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in the U.S.; both visual impairment and blindness have a significant association with disability and thus may affect participation. The purpose of this study was to explore participation in individuals with glaucoma to understand changes in everyday living.
