Clinical Ophthalmology


Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Scott Fraser

Clinical Ophthalmology is an international, peer reviewed, open access journal covering all subspecialties within ophthalmology.

Clinical Ophthalmology no longer considers meta-analyses for publication.

Specific topics covered by the journal include:

  • Optometry
  • Visual science
  • Basic Sciences, such as cell biology and genetics
  • Primary and Secondary eye care
  • Pharmacology and drug therapy in eye diseases
  • Patient Safety and Quality of Care Improvements
  • Patient Education, patient compliance, patient adherence/satisfaction

Authors are required to provide imaging and diagnostic studies regarding the clinical findings. Clinical Ophthalmology accepts original research, reviews, editorials, commentaries, book reviews, protocols for RCTs and case series. Case reports submitted to Clinical Ophthalmology will be diverted to the Ophthalmology section of the International Medical Case Reports Journal (this will be explained at the point of submission).

Letters to the Editor are only published in response to a paper. Please find requirements for letters here.

When considering submission of a paper utilizing publicly available data authors should ensure that such studies add significantly to the body of knowledge and that they are validated using the authors’ own data through replication in an original sample.
