Eye Care Economics and Economic Evaluation

Policy makers faced with the responsibility of allocating scarce resources to promote eye health need information about the amount of resources needed for different intervention and treatment choices and how the resources needed compare with the impact of the intervention or treatment on vision, visual function, and overall well-being.  While there is a growing literature that merges epidemiological data with economic data, we would like to encourage additional reporting of burden of disease, cost-effectiveness, and cost-benefit studies related to eye care.  We are also interested in studies exploring the relationship between epidemiological findings and economic incentives for behaviours related to eye care and eye health.  Additions to this literature can inform clinicians, policy makers, and patient advocate groups as well as helping to point the way toward furthering the research agenda with the goal of continuing to expand the work on economics and eye care and eye health.  To this end, Ophthalmic Epidemiology will have a focal issue on eye care economics and economic evaluation.

We invite authors to submit articles for consideration in this special issue of Ophthalmic Epidemiology, planned for print in early 2023. All submitted articles are subject to the peer-review process as usual, and only articles that pass peer-review will be accepted for publication.
