Special Issue Information
The exceptional collection of high-speed and high-resolution imaging techniques, visual simulators, and new customized lenses offers remarkable opportunities and challenges for personalized healthcare in ophthalmology. The present Special Issue aims to capture this rapid and exciting scientific progress in the field of vision research, focusing on new methods to correct refractive errors and high-order aberrations with applications in myopia control, presbyopia, and keratoconus; innovations in optical biometry and customized lens technologies; the development of innovative optical ophthalmic imaging techniques; methods to understand the link between eye movements and refractive errors; numerical simulations and optical methods for the evaluation of ocular biomechanics; and implantable sensors in ophthalmic solutions. We hope to improve our knowledge and understanding of emerging optical technologies in this research field.
For this, we call for the submission of multidisciplinary manuscripts in the field of visual optics to provide a broad scope covering experimental, theoretical, and clinical studies. Submissions may include original research papers, short communications, or targeted reviews. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:
- Recent advances in intraocular lens technology;
- Development and application of ophthalmic imaging technology and biometry;
- New insights on corneal refractive surgery;
- Advances in the monitoring and correction of keratoconus;
- Instruments to measure and/or manipulate optical aberrations and their application in myopia, presbyopia, and cataracts;
- New methods to understand the influence of eye movements on refractive error development;
- Novel optical designs for myopia control;
- Opto-biomechanical eye models and technology to assess ocular biomechanics.

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. Photonics 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.
