To the Editor:
Prof Virno is rightly concerned regarding priority in the clinical use of glycerin as an osmotic agent in lowering the ocular pressure.

As we do not routinely survey the current Italian literature, we were unfortunately not aware of Dr. Virno's excellent work in this area when we submitted our paper.
