Annals of Optometry and Contact Lens (AOCL) is the official journal of the Korean Optometry Society and the Korean Contact Lens Study Society since 2015. Previously, it was published in 2004 as the Journal of the Korean Journal of Optometry and Vision Science. The AOCL is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, which publishes clinical and basic science research and other relevant articles that relate to optometry, contact lens, and subspecialties of ophthalmology.

The primary mission of the AOCL is to provide essential knowledge regarding the optometry and contact lens study for ophthalmology residents, general ophthalmologists, and ophthalmology subspecialists to further elevate the level of optometry and contact lens study by publishing creative, original, and clinically significant research under rigorous peer review. The ultimate goal of the AOCL is to contribute to human’s health and well-being by improving and educating the science and technology of optometry and contact lens study.

The AOCL has a large reader population including ophthalmology residents, general ophthalmologists, and ophthalmology subspecialists. The AOCL promotes lifelong learning for ophthalmologists, and encourages ophthalmology residents by allowing them more publishing opportunities. The AOCL is distributed to members of the Korean Optometry Society, medical schools, and libraries to promote the expansion of the optometry and contact lens study, as well as the academic exchanges among the members of the Korean Optometry Society, the Korean Contact Lens Study Society, and the international ophthalmology society.

The AOCL emphasizes in researching optometry and contact lenses through basic and clinical studies. Previously unpublished cases and diseases specific to optometry, contact lens including orthokeratology lens, and subspecialties of ophthalmology are published through basic and clinical studies and case reports. The manuscripts submitted to the AOCL are qualified by an authoritative peer review system consisting of experienced specialists within each subspecialty. We support accessibility through the online submission system.

The full text is available from the official website (http://www.annocl.org), and open access is available since year 2004 issue (Vol. 1, No. 1). The AOCL publishes original article, case reports, letters to the editor, reviewer and commentaries requested by the editor, and is published quarterly, on the 25th day of March, June, September, and December.
