Special Issue Information
Background and history of this topic:
If not detected and properly treated, many pediatric eye diseases can lead to irreversible vision impairment, and even blindness. As a result, the life of the affected individual will be miserably disrupted. Early detection and prompt treatment are both medical and social issues, involving effort from eye care providers, especially ophthalmologists and health care providers, as well as parents.
Aim and scope of the Special Issue:
To update the current quality of screening, as well as the understanding of the causes of and treatment for specific pediatric eye diseases, with perspectives of improvements in different living environments, with specific regional challenges in the provision of ophthalmic care to children.
Advanced and effective methods of screening, early detection and treatment. The utilization of upfront technologies in molecular genomics and gene sequencing for gene mapping. Mechanistic studies on gene functions.
What kind of papers we are soliciting:
Research articles, reviews and perspectives.
