SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

VA published a document in theFederal Registeron November 10, 2008, at 73 FR 66543, revising the portion of the Rating Schedule regarding disabilities of the eye. One of the revised regulations contains an incorrect reference. In 38 CFR 4.77(a), as revised, we state “In all cases, the results must be recorded on a standard Goldmann chart (see Figure 1), and the Goldmann chart must be included with the examination report.” However, Figure 1 is not the Goldmann chart; rather, Figure 2 contains the chart. Stating “Figure 1” instead of “Figure 2” was an inadvertent mistake. This document corrects that error. We intend no substantive change by this correction, only to revise an incorrect reference.
