Zhang et al1 present a prospective, case-control study from a single tertiary referral center in China, investigating the association of allergic conjunctivitis (AC) with the health-related quality-of-life (QOL) scores on a questionnaire administered to pediatric patients and their parents. The investigators describe 92 patients with AC and 96 age-matched control patients and the health-related QOL of these patients and their parents. Both children with AC and their parents had significantly lower health-related QOL scores compared with healthy controls and their parents, and the investigators noted a significant correlation between parents’ and children’s scores.
