As someone who is in the business of both knowledge acquisition and
knowledge dissemination, I heartily applaud the birth of a new eye journal
and congratulate the editor-in-chief. One could argue that there are already
too many journals, and that there is currently an unmanageable plethora of
information in various print and electronic formats. Harried practitioners
might think that there is insufficient time in the overly busy world of medical
practice to enjoy the "luxury" (in reality, the benefit) of reading yet another
journal. On the other hand, if the new journal has a careful editorial board
that screens out invalid, misleading, or irrelevant material, and emphasizes
clinically useful information, the busy practitioner will have been provided
an extremely useful service.
