Correction to: Eye https://doi.org/10.1038/s41433-019-0515-y Since the online publication of this article, the authors have noticed that the conclusion to the abstract contains an error. The correct abstract conclusion should read as follows: FLIP elicited increased SNS activity and modulation in this bi-ethnic cohort. In Africans, decreased HRV during FLIP accompanied arteriolar and venular dilatory responses and elevated systemic levels of cTnT, implying that the SNS exerted a significant effect on the smooth muscle tone of the retinal vasculature. Disrupted retinal autoregulation may imply general autonomic nervous system dysfunction; exemplifying central control by the brain on all systemic regulatory functions, across different vascular beds.
