We would like to thank Dr Sharma and his associates for their interest in our paper. We also appreciate them for noticing the typographical errors in our paper. They noted that the logMAR values reported in Table 5 should have been written as positive numbers. The absolute values of these numbers are all correct and the confusion on our part occurred because we had followed a paper by Dr Holladay; in that paper (Table 1), logMAR values are also reported as negative numbers. Therefore, this will not affect our conclusion.
