What is Eye?

Eye is the official journal of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists and is published by Springer Nature. It aims to provide the practising ophthalmologist with information on the latest clinical and laboratory based research.

Whilst principally aimed at the practising clinician, the journal contains material of interest to a wider readership including optometrists, orthoptists, other health care professionals and research workers in all aspects of the field of visual science.

Over 32,000 medical professionals are registered to receive Eye’s free table of contents email and there are an average of 172,000 page views across the Eye web site each month.

The average time from acceptance to online publication of papers is 28 days.

Authors are invited to submit their latest clinical and laboratory based research as well as case series and reviews to Eye. For a useful presentation detailing advice, tips and guidance to help authors publish in scientific journals visit the videos page.
