We appreciate the comments of Modi and associates with respect to our recent paper.
Statistical analysis was influenced by the reviewers’ suggestions. We were asked to convert decimal best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in logMAR values, just because we treated these values as parametric parameters and because standard deviation is not symmetrical and hence appropriate for decimal BCVA.
This was a retrospective study. For this reason extraocular risk factors, as well as fundus autofluorescence images, were not available on our clinical records for all the patients.
We thank Modi and associates for their prompt comments.
