Abstract

The article “Retinal Ganglion Cell Loss in Children With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Without Diabetic Retinopathy” by Omer Karti, MD; Ozlem Nalbantoglu, MD; Saygin Abali, MD; et al., which was published in the June 2017 issue of Ophthalmic Surgery, Lasers and Imaging Retina (volume 48, issue 6, pp. 473–477), has been amended to include factual corrections. Errors were identified subsequent to its original publication. The “Patients and Methods” section of the Abstract and the main article itself have been changed to state, “In total, 60 eyes of 30 children with T1DM and 30 age- and sex-matched, normal controls were included in the study.” In Table 2, the left column originally labeled as “Study Group” has been relabeled as “Control Group,” and the middle column originally labeled as “Control Group” has been relabeled as “Study Group.” Finally, all mentions of the word “gamma” found on page 475 and in Table 3 have been changed to “r,” representing Pearson's correlation coefficient. The online article and its erratum are considered the version of record.
