Journal of Eye and Vision is a peer-reviewed, open access publication that focuses primarily on the overall ophthalmic health while emphasizing the vision quality. The journal caters to the interests of clinical practitioners, lab technicians, medical practitioners, pharmacists, diagnostic centers, academicians and students that are keen in exploring issues related to the eye care and the challenges involved in attaining optimum and quality vision towards healthy living.
The study areas of the Journal of Eye and Vision include Ophthalmology, clinical ophthalmology, Glaucoma, vision science, optometry, Eye surgical treatment, clinical investigations in ophthalmology, eye diseases, Eye Design Optometry, Paediatric Optometry, Optometry Case Reports, Experimental Optometry, cataract surgery, Corneal Disorders, Diabetic Eye Problems, Laser Eye Surgery, Optic Nerve Disorders, Eye Movement Disorders, Eye Cancer, etc.
The journal encourages advancements in the areas not limited to the one mentioned above in the form of research articles, reviews, commentaries, case studies and letters to the editors. The editorial manager system facilitates a user friendly article submission, review and publication process.

It is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eyeball and orbit. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye disease. An ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic doctor who specializes in eye and vision care. Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in their levels of training and in what they can diagnose and treat.
Optic neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerve, caused by damage to and loss of the protective sheath (myelin) surrounding this nerve that is so vital for good vision. Demyelinating optic neuritis is another term for this eye condition.
Types of Optic Nerve Disorder: Glaucoma is a group of diseases that are the leading cause of blindness in the United States.
• Optic neuritis is an inflammation of the optic nerve. Causes include infections and immune-related illnesses such as multiple sclerosis. Sometimes the cause is unknown.
• Optic nerve atrophy is damage to the optic nerve. Causes include poor blood flow to the eye, disease, trauma, or exposure to toxic substances.
Diabetic eye disease comprises a group of eye conditions that affect people with diabetes. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema (DME), cataract and glaucoma. All forms of diabetic eye disease have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness.
Facts about Diabetic Eye Diseases
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults.
DME is a consequence of diabetic retinopathy that causes swelling in the area of the retina called the macula.
Controlling diabetes by taking medications as prescribed, staying physically active, and maintaining a healthy diet can prevent or delay vision loss.
Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss.
Eye Cancer: Intraocular melanoma (melanoma of the eye) Intraocular melanoma is the most common type of cancer that develops within the eyeball in adults, but it is still fairly rare. Melanomas of the skin are much more common than intraocular melanomas. Melanomas develop from pigment-making cells called melanocytes.
Sympomps of eye cancer
Laser eye surgery uses laser technology to correct your vision. It’s been used for over 30 years and has successfully treated the poor vision of over 30 million people worldwide.
Computer Vision Syndrome, also referred to as Digital Eye Strain, describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader and cell phone use. Many individuals experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing digital screens for extended periods. The level of discomfort appears to increase with the amount of digital screen use.www.imedpub.com/articles/ocular-ergonomics-for-the-computer-vision-syndrome.php
Nystagmus is a condition that causes involuntary, rapid movement of one or both eyes. Nystagmus often occurs with vision problems, including blurriness. This condition is sometimes called “dancing eyes”.
There are three basic kinds of strabismus: Esotropia, Exotropia and Hypertropia, depending on which direction the eyes are deviated.
The most common type of strabismus is esotropia, which occurs when either one or both eyes turn in toward the nose. Some children are born with this condition. More frequently, it starts at about age 2 1/2. When esotropia occurs in these older children, eyeglasses can often help to treat the condition by correcting the child's vision for farsightedness or hyperopia.
Hypertropia is the least common type of strabismus. In this condition, one eye is higher than the other. As a result, the child often tilts or cocks his or her head to one side to get rid of the double vision that this problem frequently causes.
Exotropia is the second most common kind of strabismus. In this condition, one or both eyes turn out. It usually starts at age two or three. In the beginning, the eye may drift out only for a few seconds when the child is tired or ill. It typically occurs when the child looks far away. Closing one eye in bright sunlight when playing outside is also a common early sign.
Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. It's often linked to a buildup of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.
Types of Glaucoma: Open-angle glaucoma, Angle-closure glaucoma
Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma
Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary vision care ranging from sight testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of vision changes. An optometrist is not a medical doctor. An optometrist receives a doctor of optometry (OD) degree after completing four years of optometry school, preceded by three years or more years college. The history of optometry can be traced back to the early studies on optics and image formation by the eye. The origins of optometric science (optics, as taught in a basic physics class) date back a few thousand years BC as evidence of the existence of lenses for decoration has been found.
