Special Issue Information
Most people rely on their eyes to see and make sense of the world. However, the eye and the visual system are vulnerable to diseases and disorders at every life stage. At present, at least 2.2 billion people around the world have a vision impairment according to the World Report On Vision by WHO.
Recent advances in bioengineering are bringing exciting changes to the field of ophthalmology and visual science. Engineering methods such as biomechanics, novel imaging modalities, tissue engineering, virtual reality and artificial intelligence have shown great success in diagnosing, treating and understanding the mechanisms of various eye diseases.
In this Special Issue, we will focus on the vast range of bioengineering methods and their applications in ophthalmology and visual science. Both original research contributions and review papers are welcome. Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Ocular biomechanics;
- Ophthalmic imaging;
- Artificial intelligence in ophthalmology;
- Virtual reality;
- Biomolecular, cellular and tissue engineering in ophthalmology;
- Novel diagnostic and treatment methods in ophthalmology;
- Material characterization of ocular tissue

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. Bioengineering 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 2000 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.
