Outcome of Cornea, Iris, and Lens Perforation During Automated Lamellar Keratectomy

Outcome of Cornea, Iris, and Lens Perforation During Automated Lamellar Keratectomy Abstract In the Case Report by Sugar,1 a serious complication of automated lamellar keratectomy is described, namely, perforation of the globe. The sentence explaining the cause of this disaster notes "that the blade had not been fully seated in the keratome." To my understanding, this sentence should read "that the plate had not been fully seated in the keratome." Was this indeed a spelling error? The difference is important as proper insertion of the plate can be easily verified by the typical click sound and by external visual inspection. References 1. Sugar MD.
