Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the ever-evolving landscape of Ophthalmology, the pursuit of excellence in understanding and managing eye diseases continues to push the boundaries of medical and surgical retina. Building upon the foundation laid by the first volume, we are proud to announce the call for submissions for the 2nd Edition of our Special Issue titled "Current Challenges in the Management of Vitreoretinal Conditions”(

This Special Issue will delve deeper into the latest advancements and explore emerging challenges in the treatment and surgical intervention of vitreoretinal diseases. We aim to encapsulate the cutting-edge developments and innovative research that have emerged since our last volume, focusing on the enhancement of patient care and treatment outcomes for conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, and more.

We invite high-quality original research studies, both clinical and experimental, that contribute to our growing understanding of these complex conditions. Comprehensive review articles that synthesize recent advancements, propose new treatment paradigms, or evaluate the long-term outcomes of novel therapies are also welcome. Additionally, we continue to recognize the impact of global health challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, on the management of vitreoretinal diseases and encourage submissions that address these topics.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Innovations in the medical and surgical management of vitreoretinal diseases;
  • Advances in anti-VEGF therapies and the development of new drug delivery systems;
  • Novel diagnostic and imaging techniques in the assessment of vitreoretinal conditions;
  • The role of genetics and personalized medicine in treating retinal and vitreoretinal disorders;
  • The influence of telemedicine and digital health technologies on patient care and management;
  • Comprehensive strategies for managing the complex cases of retinal detachment, macular holes, and epiretinal membranes;
  • The evaluations of the socio-economic impacts on the accessibility and quality of vitreoretinal care;
  • Insights into the management of uveitis and ocular inflammations in the modern era.

We believe that this 2nd Edition will be an essential addition to the collective knowledge in the field, offering a platform for sharing groundbreaking research and fostering discussions that will shape the future of vitreoretinal medicine.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Georgios D. Panos
