Editorial work is as fun as riding a speed boat in choppy waters, well almost. Part exhilarating, part grueling, this experience has been an eye-opener for me.

Dear friends, with this issue, I will be signing off on my editorial role. I recall a quote stating that “a magazine – a relevant one – should be a sound, not an echo.” I believe it should be the same for a journal. Throughout this year, we had been receiving original articles on a diverse array of subjects. I feel this was reflected in our journal throughout this year, with the quality of articles being impressive. I thank all the authors for their contributions. I have also heard that “a good editor is someone who cares a little less about the authors' needs than the readers'” and sincerely hope that our readers have enjoyed our issues.

This journey has been an amazing ride with its share of potholes and thrills. I feel that we have achieved at least a few of the goals we set out to pursue. Our team has managed to hammer out most of the issues on time. This was a prerequisite for indexing in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which we are a step closer to. We are already indexed in the COPERNICUS and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).

“We edit your words, your writing, your sentences and paragraphs. but never your voice.” We have had very renowned and prominent ophthalmologists voicing their invaluable opinions and experience through our guest editorials this year.

The support and diligence of my editorial team has been immense. I thank them for their part in our journey.

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.” I wish to picture our journal scaling greater heights and I wish all the future teams' success in this endeavor.
