    I am pleased that the original article on eyeball projection has generated interest and critical review by E. Craig, however, she does not support her suggestions with evidence. The literature clearly states that the mid-orbital tangent guideline specifically predicts the “outer point of the cornea” (1) p. 266, (2) p. 429, (3) p. 381, (4) p. 429, (5) p. 29, or the "apex of the cornea" (6) p. 328. Given E. Craig's comments, either the original guideline, although inaccurate (7), was intended to be used for globe positioning using the cornea as cited over the past 40 years (1–6) (note as recently as last year); or there has been initially, or at some later stage, a misunderstanding of basic anatomical terminology, with the iris being mistaken for the cornea; or changes have been made to the traditional globe projection guideline on a post-hoc basis by using the iris to “explain away” error in the original published guideline.
