Optometry and Vision Science is soliciting papers for a Feature issue
scheduled for late Fall 2006.

"Infant and Child Hyperopia"

The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2006.

A feature issue provides the opportunity for your work to be published
alongside similar subject matter. Past feature issues of OVS have included a
number of important and highly-cited papers. For example, the 20 or so papers
published in the 1999 feature issues on myopia have been cited well over 400

It is intended for this feature issue to reflect the considerable research
activity and practitioner interest in strategies for detection, diagnosis and
management of hyperopia in infants and children. In particular, we are
interested in manuscripts on the following topics:

* Epidemiology of hyperopia related to prevalence, ethnicity, etc.

* Hyperopic refractive error related to emmetropization in infants and school

* The impact of hyperopia on reading, learning, attention, IQ, academic
performance, as well as its impact on visual acuity, accommodation and other
visual functions

* Screening for hyperopia, measurement of hyperopia, and management of the
hyperopic patient including age-dependent correction strategies for hyperopia
in infants and children.

* Animal models of refractive error, or genetics studies, whether molecular
or statistical, would also be of interest if they emphasized findings
relevant to hyperopia in infants or children.

Manuscripts must be submitted online at (ovs.edmgr.com) and should be
prepared according to the instructions to authors available via the web site
home page. Indicate that your paper is being submitted for this feature
issue. Manuscripts will be subjected to peer review under the editorial
guidance of Donald Mutti, Susan Cotter, Rowan Candy and Gunilla
Haegerstrom-Portnoy. Donald Mutti will be coordinating the review of the
submitted articles with the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor.

Please contact the Editorial Office (ovs at osu.edu) if you have any questions.
