Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ophthalmic imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. In recent years, there have been significant advances in ophthalmic imaging technologies that have improved the accuracy and efficiency of eye examinations. These advancements have led to the development of new and improved imaging modalities, including optical coherence tomography (OCT), ultra-widefield retinal imaging, and adaptive optics imaging.

OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses light waves to produce high-resolution cross-sectional images of the retina. It has become an essential tool for the diagnosis and management of various retinal diseases, including age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Confocal imaging is another important advance in ophthalmic imaging technology. It works by using a laser to produce high-resolution images of the retina and anterior segment of the eye.

Ultra-widefield retinal imaging provides a panoramic view of the retina and has been found to be particularly useful in detecting and monitoring peripheral retinal lesions, which may be missed using traditional fundus photography.

Adaptive optics imaging is a cutting-edge technology that corrects for the distortions caused by the eye's optics, enabling the visualization of individual retinal cells and structures with high resolution.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Medicina is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
