The increasing importance of translational vision research in refractive surgery

Abstract Addressing these business and financial components of research, we believe that including a section on translational vision research especially for refractive surgery will be a welcome addition to the readership of the Journal. Although the section "Translational Science" is new, the Journal has published a number of articles in past years that would have been ideal candidates for such a section. The inaugural Translational Science article in this month's issue is fron Santhiago and colleagues on short-term cell death and inflammation after intracorneal inlay implantation in rabbits. Although not all scientists are in agreement with the promotion of this term, the Journal aims to provide different outlooks and modern usage of translational research in this way to advance the field of refractive surgery.
