Experimental Eye Research is the official journal of the International Society for Eye Research.

The primary goal of Experimental Eye Research is to publish original research papers on all aspects of experimental biology of the eye and ocular tissues that seek to define the mechanisms of normal function and/or disease. Studies of ocular tissues that encompass the disciplines of cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, biophysics, immunology or microbiology are most welcomed. Manuscripts that are purely clinical or in a surgical area of ophthalmology are not appropriate for submission to Experimental Eye Research and if received will be returned without review.

Most manuscripts published are original articles describing new research findings. The journal is divided into four main sections: Aqueous Humor and Optic Nerve Head; Cornea and Lens; Retina and Vascular Biology; and Ocular Immunology and Pathology, each with their own Section Editors and a roster of Executive Editors (see Editorial Board) that have expertise in these specialized areas.

The Journal also publishes review articles, short communications, letters-to-the-editor, and methods papers, as well as topically-focused Special Issues. Full descriptions of each of these types of articles are detailed in the Guide for Authors.

Research areas include:

Production and circulation of ocular fluids and the dysfunction of these pathways underlying ocular disease

Angiogenesis, neovascularization and regulation of blood flow in the eye in health and disease

Cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and biophysics of the eye or eye tissue

Developmental and regenerative biology of the eye

Human and molecular genetics studies of inherited eye diseases

Gene therapy and neuroprotection targeted at preventing inherited ocular diseases

Neural and general physiology of the visual process
