The patients completed a researcher-made questionnaire one day before and one day after the intervention to be assessed for their knowledge and self-care performance after cataract surgery. Face as well as content validity (CVR = 0.99, CVI = 0.8) and reliability (0.839) of the data collection tool were confirmed. For statistical analysis, independent t-test and analysis of covariance were used, using SPSS16 software.
