Correction to: Medical Journal of Indonesia. 2020;29(4):379–85. In the original version of this article, some sentences in the first and second paragraphs of results were missing. The last sentence of first paragraph of results on page 381 (right column, line 8 from top of paragraph) should end with “The most common local predisposing factors for corneal ulcer were nonsurgical trauma (22 eyes with metal cutting fragments, foreign body particles, and nail or wire scratches), followed by contact lens use (14 eyes), eyelid function disorders (5 eyes with lagophthalmos, entropion, or chronic blepharitis), ocular surface disorders (5 eyes with a history of Stevens–Johnson syndrome [SJS]), irradiation-induced dry eye (1 eye), allergic conjunctivitis (1 eye), and surgical trauma (2 eyes with phacoemulsification and pterygium avulsion). Five eyes had a history of topical steroid use, and two subjects were known to have diabetes. The median ulcer size was 3.1 (0.7–9) mm. Seventeen (34%) ulcers were accompanied by hypopyon. Twelve eyes with perforations have a median of 1.5 (0.9–5.5) mm in diameter, and descemetocele was observed in six eyes. No endophthalmitis was recorded. The median duration of onset was 14 (2–120) days. Twenty-two cases developed symptoms over 2 weeks, and 15 (68.2%) were classified as severe. The median time from the first visit to surgery was 1 (1–90) day. The median follow-up time was 11.4 (3–94.4) weeks.” Also, the first sentence of second paragraph of results on page 382 (right column, line 1 from top of paragraph) should begin with “Microorganisms were found in cultures from 25 eyes, dominated by Gram-positive cocci (Table 2).
