Sight is perhaps the most precious of our senses, and the prospect of losing it can be terrifying. Vision impairment is one of the most feared disabilities worldwide, and with an increasingly ageing population, eye health services are becoming more and more important. There is a clear need to support and educate healthcare professionals in order to further their understanding of the issues involved and eye health generally.
To meet this challenge, Ophthalmology in practice will publish articles developed to appeal to the entire multidisciplinary team. With a focus on best clinical practice and treatment options, Ophthalmology in practice will publish case studies, patient viewpoints, and service development and guidance updates. Emphasis will be placed on training and clinical updates; with guidance and practical advice to support trainees and professionals in the field. Published quarterly, articles will cover general ophthalmology, cataract and refractive surgery, corneal and external eye disease, ocular genetics, retinal disease, glaucoma, pediatric ophthalmology and neuro-ophthalmology.
