|Title:||Modeling Vision in Patients with Age Related Macular Degeneration|
|Keywords:||vision;patients;macular degeneration;age related macular degeneration|
|Abstract:||The purpose of this project is to find a mathematical model to describe the vision profile of patients after treatment for choroidal neovascularization. In this model the dependent variable is the level of vision which will be predicted by time after treatment and a number of other variables measured before treatment. A standard multiple regression analysis is used to find significant predictor variables, to investigate interactions and an appropriate transformation. To take the correlation of observations on the same patient into account a linear mixed effects model is fitted. Finally the usefulness of a nonlinear mixed effects model is investigated.|
