AVAS is usually a 100-mm long horizontal line with verbal descriptors (word anchors) at each end to express the extremes of the feeling. AR patients mark the point on the line that best corresponds to their symptom severity or AR control status. To this end, they are instructed to put a cross on the straight line at the point that most accurately expresses their degree of agreement.
VAS > 5 = uncontrolled AR, VAS 2–5 = partly controlled AR and VAS score < 2 = well-controlled AR.
