I can use sts test to test for difference in time to event between
groups (using n=24 eyes) but this does not take into account the

Is there any way I can do a log-rank test which takes into account the
But the problem may run deeper than that. It could be that the status
of one eye may determine the prognosis of the other. An eye with less
severe disease may have a worse prognosis if the child's other eye
has severe disease. (This would certainly be the case in trachoma,
for instance, with the severely diseased eye acting as a nidus for
And testing a more nuanced hypothesis like this using 24 eyeballs is
going to have your data stretched till they whimper.
