**Figure 5. **Correlation plots of protein levels strongly correlated with BCVA. All data points of the relative abundance of protein levels
as determined by mass spectrometry are plotted against the corresponding BCVA values of each patient. A best-fit linear regression
line with 95% confidence bands (dotted line) is shown. Protein levels are presented as log_{2}-transformed label-free quantification units (LFQ); BCVA values are log_{10}-transformed. Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) and p values (P) are given, with p < 0.05 being statistically significant.
