Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a forthcoming Special Issue of the journal "Viruses", dedicated to exploring the complex interplay between viral infections and ocular diseases. This Special Issue will compile a diverse collection of research, review articles, and original studies that illuminate the effects of various viral pathogens on ocular health. We are particularly interested in insights related to COVID-19 and retroviruses like HTLV-1 and HIV. Additionally, we welcome contributions that investigate ocular diseases caused by other viruses, such as adenoviruses, herpesviruses, and dengue virus, as well as chikungunya virus, and their impact on the eyes.

Dr. Koju Kamoi
Guest Editor
