Eye & Contact Lens: Science & Clinical Practice:
In the article on page 324 of volume 39, issue 5, there are some errors in the text. The Abstract Results section should be replaced with the text “Seventy-four patients were treated with a therapeutic SiH BSCL (102 intervals of use) for complicated ocular surface disease. Two patients developed infectious corneal infiltrates (2/102, 2.0%).” In the article text, Methods section, the first sentence of the 2nd paragraph should read as follows “Our primary outcome measure was infection while wearing a BSCL, which was defined as suspected MK.” Finally, on page 325, Results section, the last sentence of the 5th paragraph should read as follows “Although 1 patient had LSCD (1/11 intervals, 9.1%, P=0.41) and the other RES (1/3 intervals, 33.3%, P=0.12), there was no statistically significant incidence of infection based on disease state.”
