 Message from Dr. Dennis Lam, Editor-in-Chief

Dear Colleagues,

Launched in January 2011, the Asia-Pacific Journal of Ophthalmology is now in its fifth year, serving the ophthalmic community in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. In 2016, not only do we have some new blood on the Editorial Board to bring to you fresh ideas, we have also planned 3 special issues focusing on important topics in ophthalmology and visual sciences. Each special issue will feature review articles by leading experts in that topic and will be made freely accessible to all. At the turn of the year, we are proud to present the first special issue on glaucoma. As a special effort led by Profs Robert Ritch, Jost Jonas, Christopher Leung, Ki Ho Park and Arthur Sit, the glaucoma special issue highlights the understanding and the management of the disease today and new explorations in drug delivery vehicles in the near future. The other special issues to be published in 2016 will focus on eye genetics and gene therapy and myopia, respectively.

Moreover, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our reviewers in 2015 for their constructive reviews. Reviewers are acknowledged at the journal website at We would also like to express our sincerest gratitude to the authors who have chosen APJO as their publishing platform. We hope that you will consider or continue submitting to us your interesting studies and review articles on hot topics on our way to become an impactful journal.

Sincerely yours,

Dennis Lam, MD
