—Our objective in the article "Incidence of retinal detachment following cataract extraction" (Arch Ophthalmol 89:293-295, 1973) was to present a comparison of cataract extractions using alpha-chymotrypsin with other published series. Certainly, a control study would be of interest.We are in agreement that further amplifications of ancillary data would be interesting. We have also found that the incidence of aphakia in our series of retinal detachment patients is of the same order of magnitude as quoted by Dr. Hagler.
