PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

After publication of this article [Holtzer-Goor et al], the authors noted a missing space in Table 6. 'Apart' should read 'a part' resulting in the following quotation: "With respect to glaucoma care, we have started to investigate whether a part of the activities that take place here could be substituted to optometrists who are closer to the patient��s home."
Besides, the abbreviation 'Nza' in Table 2 and Table 5 remained unexplained. It means Dutch Health Care Authority. The authors apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
