VPO24 Special Joint Issue (Biomed. Opt. Express and JOSA A)

Excellent news! Authors who submitted their work and present it during VPO24 will have an opportunity to have it published in a special joint issue in two major peer-reviewed journals!

Submissions Open: 15 November 2024
Submission Deadline: 15 February 2025

Biomedical Optics Express and JOSA A welcome submissions to a feature issue based on the 12th Visual and Physiological Optics (VPO 2024) meeting in Wrocław, Poland, on 28 – 30 August 2024. Held every two years, the VPO meetings bring together researchers, students, and clinical professionals to present their latest innovations in the fields of visual optics, optometry and vision sciences, and to shape the future of eye research technologies. Whereas meeting participants are particularly encouraged to submit their work, this feature issue is open to all contributions in related areas.

This feature issue will highlight the wide range of clinically relevant optical technology applications, such as ophthalmic instrumentation, retinal microscopy, and visual adaptive optics, that are generating better techniques for the diagnosis of retinal diseases, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, and for ocular analysis and vision testing. The issue will also include advances in clinical eye research using optical technologies, the improved optical instruments helping to optimize research techniques in myopia, and the design of new intraocular lenses to improve the outcomes of cataract surgery.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Technological Innovations in Eye Care:
•    Optical eye models and raytracing
•    Cutting-edge visual and physiological optics technologies
•    Innovative eye diagnostics
•    AI applied to vision science
•    Anterior segment imaging

Vision Quality, Correction, and Enhancement:
•    Modern procedures for vision correction
•    Psychophysics and subjective retinal image quality
•    Photoreceptors and color vision
•    Wavefronts, aberrations and objective retinal image quality
•    Corrective lens designs

Eye Anatomy and Physiology:
•    Vision and ocular physiology
•    Retina and subretinal layers
•    Tear film and cornea
•    Ocular biomechanics
•    Crystalline and intraocular lenses

All submissions need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journals. The standard Biomedical Optics Express and JOSA A Publication Charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, an expanded conference paper needs to add value to the original conference proceedings and the conference paper number must be included in the cover letter at submission. Please see Optica Publishing Group’s guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.

Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Biomedical Optics Express or JOSA A and submit through the Prism submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the feature issue on Visual and Physiological Optics.
