Error in Abstract in: Rate of Eye Injury in the United States

Arch Ophthalmol. 2005;123(9):1285. doi:10.1001/archopht.123.9.1285

Error in Abstract. In the Epidemiology article by McGwin et al titled “Rate of Eye Injury in the United States,” published in the July issue of the ARCHIVES (2005;123:970-976), an error appeared in the abstract on page 970. The “Methods” section of the abstract should have read as follows: “Data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, and the National Hospital Discharge Survey for 2001 were combined and used to provide estimates of eye injuries treated in emergency departments, inpatient and outpatient facilities, and private physicians’ offices, as well as their causes and characteristics.” The journal regrets the error. This correction was made previously to online versions of this article.
