To the Editor.
—I would like to ask Fantes et al1 to clarify an ambiguous point about their article that appeared in the May 1990 issue of the Archives.In the "Comment" section, the authors stated that the "majority of corneas remained clear when they epithelialized by 2 weeks after surgery." This indicates to me they are distinguishing between those that epithelialized early and those that did not. Earlier in the article, however, they noted that all corneas had epithelialized by 7 days, so how can they make this distinction?
