Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The incidence of diabetes has risen markedly in the past several decades and the complications associated with diabetes are the leading cause of blindness in the working age adults.

Impaired corneal innervation and development of retinopathy in diabetes are important indicators of diabetic neuropathy. Early diagnosis of neuropathy is very important for evaluation of risks and therapeutic management and efforts for the preservation of visual function are our main goal.

This special issue is intended to focus on describing the most recent findings on impaired corneal innervation and retinal changes in diabetic patients, investigations on mechanisms of neuronal cell death and findings in theraputical apporaches for diabetic kerato- and retinopathy.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

-New Insights in Understanding Diabetic Neuropathy

-Anterior segment in diabetes (corneal changes, impaired corneal innervation)

- Early detection of diabetic retinopathy and keratopathy using non-invasive imaging

- Diabetic Retinopathy: Current Concepts and Future Directions

- Novel Therapeutic Targets for Diabetic Retinopathy and Keratopathy
