Error in Figure. In the Epidemiology article by The Eye Diseases Prevalence Research Group titled “The Prevalence of Refractive Errors Among Adults in the United States, Western Europe, and Australia,” published in the April 2004 issue of the ARCHIVES (2004;122:495-505), an error appeared in Figure 3 on page 498. In the creation of that figure, the black and white prevalence rates from the Baltimore Eye Survey were inadvertently reversed. The corrected figure is reprinted here with its legend.
