Second Call for Papers

Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics is soliciting papers for a feature  
issue on:
"The Role of Vision in Everyday Activities"

A feature issue provides the opportunity for your work to be published

particular, we are interested in manuscripts on the following topics  
that relate to the link between visual function and everyday  
activities such as driving, mobility, balance control, falls, reading,  
face perception and other important functional tasks.

The types of research could include:
Epidemiology studies, experimental studies, or survey-based designs.

The topics could include:

Studies that explore the relationship between vision and driving.

orientation or balance.

Studies on vision and reading, including the development and  
evaluation of interventions to improve reading in persons who are  
visually impaired.
