Communications are short papers. Appropriate material for this section includes reports of incidental research results, comments on papers previously published, and short descriptions of theoretical and experimental techniques. Communications are handled much the same as regular papers. Proofs are provided.
In a recent paper, Koretz et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 21, 346 (2004) ] conclude that the results of the “corrected Scheimpflug technique” to obtain the shape of the human lens differ significantly from their magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. We demonstrate that the conclusions are based on incorrect statistical methods. A straightforward statistical comparison shows that there is no significant difference between the corrected Scheimpflug results and the MRI data.
