Optometry and Vision Science is soliciting papers for a Feature issue
scheduled for Spring 2007 .

"Contact lenses in sub-optimal environments"

The deadline for submissions is August 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 the feature issue to reflect the considerable research
activity and practitioner interest in the strategies for advancements in
material technology that targets dropouts, dry eye, high risk patients,
therapeutic lenses, new solutions, lens-solution interactions and contact
lenses in challenging environments. In particular, we are interested in
manuscripts on the following topics:

* New contact lens materials and solutions targeting previously unsuccessful
patients or challenging environments 

* Dry eye and contact lens wear. 

* Corneal infection and contact lens wear: basic and clinical research 

* High risk patient contact lens approaches 

* Therapeutic contact lenses

* Basic corneal health related to contact lens wear

Manuscripts must be submitted online at ovs.edmgr.com and should be prepared
according to the instructions to authors available via the web site homepage.
Indicate in the "Author's Comments" that your paper is being submitted for
this feature issue. Manuscripts will be subjected to peer review under the
editorial guidance of Loretta Szczotka-Flynn, Lyndon Jones, Donald Korb and
Deborah Sweeney. Loretta Szczotka-Flynn will be coordinating 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.
