Call for Submissions

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.

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. 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.).


This journal is funded in part by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
