We thank the readers for showing interest in our article , and for their suggestions. First, assessment of endothelial cell density and follow-up after the surgery is definitely an efficacious strategy. It was the weakness of our study. However, assessment of clinical signs of corneal decompensation should also be helpful to compare both methods. In this study, we didn't interest in structural changes. The outcomes of structural changes - if there is - such as iridocyclitis, hyphema, glaucoma, or pupillary block were more determining for basic evaluation. 
Second, it is definitely indispensable to assess the macula and central macula thickness during the follow-up. We evaluated the macula with the optical coherence tomography (Opko/OTI, Miami, FL, USA).
Last but not least, our preliminary study was the short-term results. Since it was the first in literature, our study was important to give an idea to the researchers in future studies. We will appreciate to see more studies to learn about the long-term results which compare these two methods.
