To All Potential Authors:

Optometry & Vision Development, the official journal of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, seeks high quality papers of clinical significance in all areas related to vision and vision care. Our open access, no cost to authors, peer reviewed journal is reaching out to all potential authors including  our international colleagues.

This journal is interested in any articles involving vision and vision development. This includes articles on 3D Vision Syndrome (the problems/symptoms associated with watching 3D movies, television, video-games), binocular vision dysfunction, treatment modalities, and related areas.

In previous issues of the journal we’ve had well known researchers and clinicians publish in OVD. An example of these articles include:
