We thank you for your detailed query regarding the article, “Madhivanan N, Aysha PA, Nishanth S, Madhivanan N. White to black: Keratopigmentation. TNOA J Ophthalmic Sci Res 2019;57:68-70.” Following your letter, we have studied the matter in-depth and have the following to say:

  1. Regarding the issue of acknowledgment, we understand that the image attached by the authors was indeed that of yours, and we apologize for the lapse
  2. Regarding the issue, the authors have not claimed to have been the first to do it. They have simply reported the result of their patient. We do agree that the review of literature could have been more exhaustive. However, there was no published body of work to quote from or cite. We agree with you that several surgeons have adopted this wonderful procedure and have been having good success of it. This article is a published report of one such surgeon's.
