This article [J. Biomed. Opt. 16, 035003 (2011)] was originally published online on 16 Mar 2011 with an error in Table 4: the columns titled “95% Cl” were reversed. The corrected table appears below.

Table 4

Visual acuities for the groups with a natural visual acuity ≥1.1 and <1.1 under different magnification conditions: natural visual acuity (NV), single lens loupe (S), Galilean system (G), and Keplerian system (K). Within the columns, significant differences are represented by the different superscript letteres (a: p < 0.001, b: p < 0.05).
