Welcome to Retina Today, our on-line, peer reviewed journal, dedicated to improving knowledge and clinical practice and to promoting communication in the scientific community interested in research, care and therapy of retinal diseases.

In a time of rapid changes and developments, publishing on the web is, in our opinion, the right way to spread scientific knowledge and to enable professionals throughout the world to find a major source of information. That's why Retina Today is an on-line only journal. In its open to everybody and user friendly site you will easily access different types of contents:

  • scientific contributions of unquestionable relevance and interest to readers worldwide, written by leading experts: from original research articles, to case reports, from surgical techniques to comprehensive reviews. Particular attention will be given to the imaging section, with publication of interesting videos and photos;

  • news and observatory with selected "snapshots", numbers and statistics that summarize epidemiological information and clinical trials results, to get to know better the "retina world";

  • historical news and interviews on the eye world by Roberto Gervaso, a world famous Italian journalist and writer.

The success of the journal will depend on our editorial skills but also on your readiness to submit papers on your work and research. Our emphasis is therefore on the rapid publication and the easy access of published articles to anyone anywhere.
But reading an article is even more useful if you can comment it and exchange your ideas and opinions with the authors. That's why we have worked hard on the interactivity of the journal, offering you the possibility to comment papers and news through a user friendly on-line submission form.

In this first issue I would like to thank particularly Prof. Rosario Brancato for the scientific and cultural stimulus he has always given me, that have been the basis also for the development of this project. Finally I want to thank all the people who have worked and believed in this project. I hope that the efforts of the authors, the Editorial Board, the editorial manager, the information technologists and staff will be appreciated. We eagerly await your suggestions. Please, do not hesitate to let us know what you think of the journal and what you would like to see in it, so that we may better serve you and help you to better serve the patients.

Enjoy the reading!
