In the Original Investigation titled “Epidemiologic Trends of Chemical Ocular Burns in the United States,” published in the October issue of JAMA Ophthalmology,1 editing errors appeared in the text. In the first paragraph of the Methods section, “weighted” was incorrectly changed to “biased” when the last sentence was edited. The full sentence should have read: “It is a 20% stratified sample of national ED visits, designed to be weighted to the level of the US population to provide national estimates associated with ED care.” Also, in the first 2 sentences of the second paragraph of the Results section, “years” was incorrectly added in 6 places after parenthetical age-specific event rates. Those sentences should have read: “Age-specific incidence rates per 100 000 population were highest among individuals aged 20 to 29 years (average, 17.4), followed by age 30 to 39 years (14.9), 40 to 49 years (13.2), and 9 years or younger (12.1) (Figure). Among rates for individual years of life, however, injuries were most common among 1-year-old (average, 28.6) and 2-year-old (23.5) children.” This article was corrected online.
