The journal was established in New York in 1869 as the Archives of Ophthalmology and Otology, with a simultaneous German language version published in Karlsruhe, Germany, as Archiv für Augen- und Ohrenheilkunde; sometimes articles would be slightly different. The editors were Hermann Knapp (1832-1911, New York), who practiced both ophthalmology and otology, with greater emphasis on the eye, and the otologist Salomon Moos (1831-1895, Heidelberg).[1][2] The journal obtained its current name in 2013.[3]
