The peer-reviewed publication focuses on the external eye and vision, offering analysis of groundbreaking work in laboratory science, clinical science and clinical practice.

Covering areas such as ophthalmology, optometry, genetics, molecular biology and pharmacology, the journal has been given an impact factor of 3.103 by Thomson Reuters and has ranked as one of its top ten ophthalmology publications in the Journal Citation Reports for the last three years.
