Welcome to the World Journal of Ophthalmology (WJO), a new general ophthalmology journal from Baishideng Publishing Group. The aim of the journal is to promote high quality research for and from eye-care practitioners all over the world. The WJO is a new member of the World Journal series of peer-reviewed, international English-language, open-access journals that are designed to provide a fast peer review process for all submitted manuscripts. We intended to provide the most up-to-date electronic means of articles in all fields of ophthalmology. New journal that is available on internet for everyone will provide a forum for publication and free access of high quality scientific papers documenting clinical and experimental advances in the areas of ophthalmology. All subspecialties within ophthalmology, visual sciences, pharmacology and drug therapy in eye diseases, primary and secondary eye care, patient safety reports, surgical techniques, and improvements in quality of care will be accepted for publication. We look forward in the future to your fascinating contributions to the WJO.
