Abstract
The article presents results of research about life quality in adolescents with visual impairments in the context of their hardiness. The study surveyed 173 adolescents aged 13-16 years. 22 with impaired vision (residual vision is less than 0.05%) and 39 visually impaired adolescents among them. The collection of empirical data was carried out with the use of techniques «Assessment of life quality» (SF-36), «Short test of Hardiness», Dembo-Rubinstein self-assessment in the modification by P.V. Yanshin, analysis of medical documents. According to hypothesis life quality of adolescents with visual impairments mediates by their level of hardiness. The results of the study shows that the assessment of life quality in visually impaired adolescents is quite realistic, while in blind adolescents it is overpriced as compensation. Hardiness is a factor that determines the life quality in a sample of visually impaired adolescents and it has no significant effect on the assessment of the life quality of blind adolescents. The main resource for maintaining and improving the life quality of adolescents with visual impairment are the parameters that characterize the life quality in the aspect of mental health.
