Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the first volume of this Special Issue being a great success (, we invite you to publish your research in the second volume.

Anterior eye health is necessary to guarantee good vision and quality of life; a significant number of anterior eye conditions are leading causes of ocular morbidity with different impacts on subject vision, such as dry eye disease, conjunctival issues (including infections, immune diseases, systemic diseases complications, etc.), different types of trauma, microbial keratitis, corneal dystrophies, degenerations and ectasias (such as keratoconus, etc.), cataracts, eye inflammation (uveitis), or complications of contact lens wear or other related eye treatments (for example, the impact of eyedrops on the ocular surface in glaucoma management or other chronic eye diseases, corneal iatrogenic issues after corneal refractive surgery, etc.). In addition, myopia control is usually conducted with different contact lens designs or fitting techniques (orthokeratology).

This Special Issue invites original articles and reviews focusing on the broad topic of corneal diseases, anterior eye diseases, and eye diseases from in vitro/in vivo models, the evaluation of technology for corneal and anterior eye clinical assessment (topography, tomography, specular microscopy, biometry, etc.), and improvements in eye condition diagnosis and patient management with experimental and/or clinical evidence across a wide range of patients (pediatric, adults, and elderly) and conditions (myopia control, anterior eye diseases, etc.), with particular attention paid to primary eye care practice (early diagnosis), interdisciplinary collaboration, and the management of patients’ quality of life.
