Abstract

  • The authors regret that the following errors were made in the original Fig. 3 and the corresponding text. 1. In Fig. 3D, the linear regression fit line was inadvertently not removed.2. The spearman correlation coefficient and corresponding p-value for the association between TFLL thinning rate and PCTF thickness were incorrectly stated as ρ = 0.06, p = 0.40 in Fig. 3E and section 3.4.The revised text and figure shown below correct these errors. 3.4. Correlation between PCTF and TFLL thicknesses and thinning rates. The correlations between PCTF and TFLL thicknesses and thinning rates are summarized in Fig. 3. There was a positive correlation between PCTF thickness and PCTF thinning rate (ρ = 0.63, p < 0.001) (Fig. 3A). In contrast, negative correlations were found between PCTF thickness and TFLL thickness (ρ = −0.42, p < 0.001) (Fig. 3B) and between PCTF thinning rate and TFLL thickness (ρ = −0.46, p < 0.001) (Fig. 3C). There was no correlation between TFLL thinning rate and PCTF thinning rate (ρ = 0.06, p = 0.40) (Fig. 3D), between TFLL thinning rate and PCTF thickness (ρ = 0.01, p = 0.88) (Fig. 3E), or between TFLL thickness and TFLL thinning rate (ρ = 0.14, p = 0.06) (Fig. 3F). The results indicate TFLL thinning rate as an independent factor of other three variables, PCTF thickness, PCTF thinning rate and TFLL thickness, whereas the true correlations exist among those three physical properties. [Figure presented] The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
