The Editorial Board of Optometry and Vision Science is a team of talented individuals with decades of collective experience covering the wide range of topics published in the journal. These board members not only shoulder the majority of the burden marshalling manuscripts through peer review, but also lend their topical expertise to help improve the quality of the work we publish.
Two new members were added to the Editorial Board in January, and we are pleased to welcome these dedicated members to the team. Dr. Bang V. Bui is an associate professor and deputy head of the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia. He is also an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. Dr. Bui has a strong record of editorial experience as an associate editor for Clinical and Experimental Optometry and an Editorial Board member for PLoS ONE, Frontiers in Physiology, the International Journal of Ophthalmology, and the International Research Network: Ophthalmology. Dr. Bui's expertise lies in glaucoma and the pathophysiology of the disease. His research experience includes basic physiology of glaucoma, as well as more recent investigations on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration associated with aging and other diseases affecting the central nervous system such as diabetes. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Bui to Optometry and Vision Science as an Editorial Board member.
The second new member added to the Editorial Board is Dr. James Wolffsohn, professor and associate pro vice chancellor, Aston University, Birmingham, United Kingdom. Dr. Wolffsohn has been a long-time contributor to the journal as a reviewer, for a wide range of topics that reflect his broad expertise. Dr. Wolffsohn also brings a wealth of previous editorial experience from his contributions to BMJ Ophthalmology, Journal of Optometry, Clinical and Experimental Optometry, Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, Contact Lens and Anterior Eye, and PLoS ONE. Dr. Wolffsohn's topical expertise includes optics, optical instrumentation, contact lenses, and anterior segment diseases, including dry eye, low vision, clinical trials, and ocular growth and development, to name a few! Please welcome Dr. Wolffsohn to the Optometry and Vision Science Editorial Board.
These two individuals bring additional amazing talent and complementary experiences to an already strong editorial board. Optometry and Vision Science is very fortunate to have these outstanding members of our community helping to build the future of the Academy's Journal.
