Chinese Journal of Practical Ophthalmology was founded in May 1983. From the beginning, the service target of the journal is for clinical ophthalmology doctors. The published contents must face to clinical, highlight practical, in order to guide and improve the theoretical level and the practical treatment capacity of Chinese ophthalmologists. Until now, the basic principles of the journal have been well carried out. We have published a lot of articles which have much practical value to clinicians, and which not only get warm welcomes in the ophthalmology area, but also have great impact on the area of Chinese clinical ophthalmology. The journal was changed into bimonthly publication in 1985, and then published monthly in 1986. In the past 20 years, Chinese Journal of Practical Ophthalmology has set columns about Special Topics for Discussion, Clinical Research, Experimental Studies, Case Reports, and Academic Trends and so on. In the second half of 2005, we began to provide expert consultation column, which mainly contain case discussion, special case display, as well as the question-answer about problems existing in clinic. We have founded more than 20 years, articles published in this period are characterized by having close connection to the clinical practices, so that the ophthalmologist’s theoretical level and also the capacity of diagnosis and treatment are being improved by reading and using the articles. The journal has great popularity in readers and is beloved of the readers.
