I am delighted to welcome you to the Fall edition of US Ophthalmic Review, packed full of topical articles that we hope you find useful and relevant to your day-to-day clinical practice.
We would like to take the opportunity to invite colleagues in the field to contribute to our Spring 2020 edition. The journal accepts review articles, original research, and case studies, along with specially selected editorial articles. We encourage authors to enhance their articles with video content, such as surgical demonstrations and video abstracts, which help to engage the audience and bring the article to life.
Presubmission enquiries are welcomed by the journal’s editorial team and submissions can be made through the touchOPHTHALMOLOGY submission portal (see the information box below).
US Ophthalmic Review would like to thank all expert authors who contributed towards this edition. A special thanks goes to our Editorial Board for their continuing support and guidance. Thanks also go to all organizations and society partners for their ongoing support.
