Dear Seniors and Friends,

Greetings from the office of TNOA Journal of Ophthalmic Science and Research (TJOSR).

It's with immense pleasure that we bring you the very first issue of TJOSR for the year 2021. Its indeed a great privilege to serve as editor of this prestigious journal for the past 2 years and for that honor and your continued support, I remain truly grateful. In spite of the pandemic, we have had a good number of submissions this past year. Getting the Directory of Open Access Journal indexing was a major milestone. Overall, it has been a good year for the journal and the team. Let's hope the new year brings with it new and exciting possibilities.

On January 16, 2021, India launched the world's largest vaccination program as part of it is ongoing battle against the coronavirus disease, with an initial target of 300 million people. Thanks to scientists, researchers, and biotech firms, the vaccine was developed and launched at warp speed. The health-care system, in turn, has managed to distribute the vaccine with remarkable efficiency. Most health-care professionals like us, would have, by now been successfully vaccinated. Vaccine hesitancy had emerged as a major challenge. It is therefore crucial to spread awareness regarding the safety and efficacy of the vaccines and emphasize the role of timely vaccination in preventing a possible second wave of infection.

“The world is bright, Save your sight”; is the motto of World Glaucoma Week 2021, a global initiative of the World Glaucoma Association. The motto reflects the hope that with early detection through increased awareness and appropriate testing, blindness caused by glaucoma can be prevented, so that more people would continue to see and enjoy this bright and beautiful world of ours.

Returning to this issue of the journal, we are pleased to bring you an interesting mix of articles from different subspecialties. We have an extensive review of literature of current concepts and future trends in Dry eye syndrome by Dr. Bharat Gurnani, Dr. kirandeep Kaur and Dr. Maddala Chaitanya Kumar from Aravind Eye Hospital, Pondicherry.

We also have an interesting drug update on Rho kinase inhibitors in ophthalmology, compiled by Dr. Megha Gopalakrishnan and Dr. Srinivasan Kavitha. The update on Bionic eye from Bengaluru is an interesting read.

Also, in this issue, there are several good original articles as well as our regular features, such as the Photo Quiz.

I wish to thank the authors who have contributed to this issue, the reviewers for meeting the deadlines, and the editorial board for their coordinated effort. The new portal is in the process of being streamlined and we soon hope to make it seamless as it was before.
