Abstract

PURPOSE

To create a health utility value for birdshot chorioretinopathy (BCR) using Time Trade-Off (TTO) and Standard Gamble (SG) utilities.

METHOD

Adult BCR patients completed TTO, SG, EQ-5D-5L, and NEI VFQ-25 questionnaires and underwent a detailed history and clinical examination.

RESULTS

A total of 28 BCR patients (9 M, 19 F; mean age 62 years, range 47-83) were included. There were 22 patients with a logMAR vision of 0.3 or better in both eyes. Mean TTO was 0.90 ± SD 0.18 (range 0.33-1.0) and mean SG was 0.94 ± SD 0.14 (range 0.5-1.0). TTO correlated with EQ-5D-5L index value ( = .024) and NEI VFQ-25 composite score ( = .015).

CONCLUSIONS

Of 28 patients with BCR, 11 would trade remaining life (mean 5.4 years), and 6 would take a risk of immediate death (mean 28% risk), in return for perfect vision in both eyes for the rest of their life.
