Page 1505, line 3, “Results” section: “After education, 94% of patients versus 47% pre-teaching (P=0.0001) pulled down their lower eyelids. A total of 91% pre-teaching versus 59% post-teaching (P=0.0042) patients squeezed one drop into the lower fornix, 74% pre-teaching versus 26% post-teaching (P=0.0002) patients released the eyelid and closed the eye for 1 minute, and 56% pre-teaching versus 3% post-teaching (P=0.0001) patients applied nasal digital pressure on each eye.” This should have read as follows: “After education, 94% of patients versus 47% pre-teaching (P=0.0001) pulled down their lower eyelids. A total of 91% post-teaching versus 59% pre-teaching (P=0.0042) patients squeezed one drop into the lower fornix, 74% post-teaching versus 26% pre-teaching (P=0.0002) patients released the eyelid and closed the eye for 1 minute, and 56% post-teaching versus 3% pre-teaching (P=0.0001) patients applied nasal digital pressure on each eye.”
Page 1510, “Acknowledgment” section: “This research was supported by funds from the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation.” This section should have read as follows: “The study was funded by the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation and an unrestricted grant to the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Neurosciences from the Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB), New York, NY, USA.”
