We are pleased to invite you to contribute to our upcoming publication on "New Insights in Pediatric Optometry and Vision Science." This initiative aims to drive novel research to understand the eye and visual system, prevent and treat vision diseases.
As the field continues to evolve rapidly, collaboration in vision research and clinical care is crucial to develop new ideas and share knowledge across other fields.
We believe that your expertise and research can make a significant contribution to this endeavor.
We welcome submissions on various topics related to pediatric optometry and vision science, including but not limited to:
- Pediatric eye diseases.
- Early visual development and its long-term impact on ocular health.
- Screening and diagnostic strategies for visual conditions in children.
- Characterization of ocular parameters based on refractive errors in children.
- Ocular and environmental factors associated with eye growth in childhood.
- Guidelines for spectacle prescribing in infants and children.
- Advances in the treatment and management of myopia in children.
- Quality of Life Related to Vision in Myopic Children Treated with Various Methods for Myopia Control.
- Myopia prevalence in Europe.
- Influence of digital technology on children's visual health.
- Assessment and management of binocular disorders in childhood.
- Approaches to amblyopia and strabismus in the pediatric population.
- Innovations in lens design and optical devices for children.
- Optometric care for pediatric populations with special needs.
These are just examples, and there are many other topics that could be explored within the realm of pediatric optometry and vision science for such a special edition.
This Special Issue invites systematic reviews, meta-analyses, recommendations, guidelines, original research manuscripts, narratives, scoping reviews, technical reports, and short communications to enhance contemporary research in pediatric optometry and vision science.
