The BIOJ is the official journal of the British and Irish Orthoptic Society. The BIOS was founded in 1937. BIOS is a professional and educational body for the UK and Republic of Ireland representing orthoptists. Orthoptics is a world-wide profession, and the BIOS is recognised as being a leader in both education and clinical practice.
The BIOJ invites submissions relating to original research, review articles, case reports and scientific letters to the editor in areas related to clinical ocular motility, visual function, amblyopia, binocular vision and strabismus. The journal will accept submissions from a wide variety of disciplines, including orthoptists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, and vision technicians, among others.
2022 has been an exciting year for the BIOJ. We have grown and published some exciting new research relating to orthoptic clinical practice and orthoptic research.
I would like to thank all of our reviewers and editorial board for their hard work and valuable contributions to the BIOJ. Your continued support and input helps the BIOJ evolve and stay relevant to our readers.
Best wishes for 2023.
Dr Gemma Arblaster, BIOJ Editor in Chief
