Comparison of outcomes with multifocal intraocular lenses: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Multifocal intraocular lenses provide better uncorrected near visual acuity than monofocal IOLs, leading to less need for spectacles and higher spectacle independence rates compared with other multifocal I OLs.
Effects of dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease on quality of life and health‐related costs: a prospective European study
TLDR
Dyskinesias may adversely affect QoL and increase health care costs in patients with PD and future studies should evaluate the potentially beneficial effects of strategies to delay the onset of, or the treatment of, dyskinesia.
Five-year extension of a clinical trial comparing the EX-PRESS glaucoma filtration device and trabeculectomy in primary open-angle glaucoma
TLDR
Ex-PRESS is an effective device for long-term treatment of primary open-angle glaucoma, and patients required fewer intraocular pressure medications and fewer surgical interventions during the five-year study period.
Vision related quality of life and topical glaucoma treatment side effects

A low incidence of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) and Nd : YAG laser treatment was detected in hydrophobic acrylic IOLs in comparison to three other types of I OLs implanted in a large cohort of persons with age-related cataract.
