Aims & Scope

The Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology (CJO) is the official journal of the Canadian Ophthalmological Society and is committed to timely publication of original, peer-reviewed ophthalmology and vision science articles.

The purpose of the Canadian Ophthalmological Society is to assure the provision of optimal eye care to all Canadians by promoting excellence in ophthalmology and providing services to support its members in practice.

La Société canadienne d'ophtalmologie veille à ce que la population canadienne reçoive les meilleurs soins oculaires possible, en encourageant la poursuite de l'excellence en ophtalmologie et en procurant des services de soutien à ses membres.

The Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology participates in the American Board of Ophthalmology’s Quarterly Questions® program. Quarterly Questions is an online activity for board-certified ophthalmologists that assesses clinically relevant practice knowledge and encourages continual article-based learning.

The ABO’s Continuing Certification program was developed by ophthalmologists for ophthalmologists as part of a system of professional self-regulation for physician specialists. Continuing Certification activities are created and administered by the ABO and its teams of volunteer subject matter experts to meet standards established by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

The ABO is a separate entity from Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology and is an independent, nonprofit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists (eye physicians and surgeons) in the United States. To learn more about the ABO’s Quarterly Questions Program, visit
