Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past twenty years, application after adaption of imaging and electrophysiology techniques used initially for adults has allowed a more intricate structural and functional evaluation of children with ocular disease. This had led to better diagnosis, better surveillance, and ultimately better outcomes for children with both rare and complex ocular diseases. The adaptation of techniques for use in children necessitates an understanding of both the behavioural approach and better attention retention to achieve reliable and repeatable results.

The use of visual evoked potentials and OCT imaging allows for structure–function correlation, and the use of serial visuals evokes potential in the evaluation of visual pathway functioning that can be used for monitoring visual pathway dysfunction in both intracranial disease and amblyopia. An understanding of the ocular ultrasound and different modalities of this can help with diagnosis, especially with optic nerve head disease. Oral fluorescein angiography can be performed safely and provide valuable information in children with retinal disease. Perhaps the most constructively disruptive technology is optical coherence tomography, and its use for paediatric ophthalmology has brought several advantages.

In this Issue, we demonstrate the combination of imaging (structure) and electrophysiology (function) to help not only the diagnosis but also the prognosis of paediatric ocular diseases.

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 papers will be 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. Journal of Clinical Medicine 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.
