Following publication of the original article [1], the authors noticed an error in their article.

The third sentence of the Results section of the abstract: “Twenty-one (68%), 7 (16%) and 2 (4%) of the iris melanomas were of the spindle, mixed and epithelioid cell types, respectively.” Should be replaced with: “Twenty-one (68%), 7 (23%) and 3 (10%) of the surgically treated iris melanomas were of the spindle, mixed and epithelioid cell types, respectively.”

Similarly, the same sentence should replace the sixth sentence in the Descriptive statistics of the main text.

The numbers are correctly stated in Table 1.
