In the article “Piggyback Foldable Intraocular Lens Implantation in Patients with Microphthalmos” (J Cataract Refract Surg 2001; 27:841–844) , Table 2, page 843, contains a mistake. The table should be as follows:

Table 2
Table 2:
Difference between predicted and actual postoperative refractions.

The error was caused by the incorrect power calculation program incorporated into the A-scan instrument (UD-7000, Tomey Corp.), which the authors failed to notice. Recalculation using the corrected program indicated that the Hoffer Q formula offered the most accurate predictions for the 5 microphthalmic eyes.
