Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are accepted widely as important outcomes in comparative effectiveness research. Over 30 PROMs have been described for use in glaucoma research, but their role in routine care is undefined. Our study explores the views of patients with glaucoma and their carers on the feasibility and content of a glaucoma PROM for use in day-to-day clinical practice.
