One of the many interests that ophthalmologists have––particularly senior ophthalmologists––is ophthalmic history and how the knowledge, skills, and practices from the past have developed and transformed into our contemporary practice of ophthalmology.

For those interested in history, there is a new online journal: Historia Ophthalmologica Internationalis. The journal is free and is edited by Andrzej Grzybowski, MD, PhD, Professor of Ophthalmology 
and Head of the Department of Ophthalmology, Poznan, Poland, and Chair of Ophthalmology, University of Warmia and Mazury, Olsztyn, Poland. Jean-Paul Wayenborgh, the journal’s publisher, has a noted background in antiquarian medical literature and specializes in producing high quality books on the history of ophthalmology, optics, and ENT.

Both established and new authors are invited to contribute articles that cover the spectrum of ophthalmologic history, from physiology, anatomy, surgery, and medications to instrumentation. Published articles will be indexed on PubMed Central and Google Scholar.

In addition, the journal will be offering free online access to the English translation of Julius Hirschberg’s series The History of
 Ophthalmology. For more information about the journal and to submit an article, go to:

For those interested in scholarly forums, national ophthalmology history societies with long traditions and active annual meetings include the Cogan Ophthalmic History Society, the Julius Hirschberg Gesellschaft zur Geschichte der Augenheilkunde, and the Société Francophone d´Histoire de l´Ophtalmologie.
