The Archives of Ophthalmology and Otology began publication in New York in 1869 with a simultaneous German language version published in Carlsruhe, Germany, as Archiv für Augen- und Ohrenheilkunde; sometimes articles would be slightly different. The editors were Hermann Knapp, MD (1832-1911), of New York, who practiced both ophthalmology and otology, with greater emphasis on the eye, and the otologist Salomon Moos, MD (1831-1895), of Heidelberg.[3][4]


According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2016 impact factor of 5.625, ranking it 3rd out of 59 journals in the category "Ophthalmology".[5][6]
