Lipids in Retinal Health and Disease

Edited by Zhongjie Fu, Chuck T. Chen, Michael Landowski, Qian Li Dyslipidaemia is associated with many retinal metabolic diseases during development and aging. However, the role of lipids in retinal health is not well known. BMJ Open Ophthalmology is calling for submissions on retinal lipid biology including lipid alterations and dyslipidaemia-associated metabolic changes (glucose, amino acid) in retinal diseases, targeting metabolism for disease prevention and treatment.

Imaging and Biomarkers in Ophthalmology

Edited by Vito Romano, Mariantonia Ferrara, Jingjing Huang Ophthalmic imaging methods are crucial for diagnosing and managing various eye pathologies, enabling improved detection and characterization of structural and functional changes in the eye. The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning in ophthalmic imaging opens up new possibilities for screening, diagnosis, monitoring, and predicting the progression of ocular conditions. This Topic Collection includes original research on various ophthalmic imaging methods, biomarkers and the use of AI, and Deep Learning techniques in both anterior and posterior segments of the eye.
