About the Journal:
The Journal of Narrative Visions (JNV) is a newly established online journal that accepts narrative medicine and creative pieces related to ophthalmology, optometry, and vision care. We are now open for submissions including non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and artwork.

The mission of JNV is to provide an online space where healthcare workers, caregivers, and patients may reflect on their personal experiences caring for those with ophthalmological issues or personally living with vision problems.

Submission Process

We welcome submissions from patients, caregivers, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other healthcare workers including medical students and residents from all over the world.

If you would like to submit a piece, please follow our submission guidelines located under "Submissions" on our website www.narrativevisions.org. All submissions should be emailed to narrativevisions@gmail.com.

Considerations for Acceptance

The JNV encourages submissions that reflect on personal experiences within the realm of vision care. Topics include, but are not limited to: healthcare for the blind, the effect of technology on restoring eyesight, global health missions, and the role of ophthalmologists in identifying systemic illness (diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disease, etc.).
