This letter is in response to letter by Singh et al. [1] pertaining to our recent publication “Biometric changes in Indian pediatric cataract and postoperative refractive status”.[2] Here are our responses point-by-point.

The number of patients in unilateral group was not too large and hence a reliable analysis was not possible to compare unilateral and bilateral eyes.[2]The refraction on day 1 post operatively was not done under general anaesthesia. It was not expected to be completely accurate, but it gave a general impression of the accuracy of under correction and desired refractive status.[3]Based on previous experience with SRK II and postoperative refractive status of Indian children, nomogram in [Table 1] was used for desired outcomes.[4]{Table 1}
