"The authors have performed the Mann Whitney U test while looking for differences between eyes. This is an example of paired data, between related samples, and calls for the non-parametric equivalent of the paired t-test, and thus the appropriate test ought to be the Wilcoxon test. But even here with 44 pairs, a paired t-test would be deemed a superior approach and would be quite appropriate, even if the sample data are non-normal, since with samples of this size the Central Limit Theorum kicks in, and justifies using statistical tests for parametric data. "

My question is ... Is it correct to call it Paired Sample? and Why?

Does it mean I have to re do my calculations?

Is it correct to say that for samples as small as these paired T test would be better?
