As most eyecare providers know, restricting OD's access to their patients during the beginning of coronavirus lockdown was detrimental to early diagnoses of degenerative eye diseases. While this is a lasting consequence of the pandemic and information that you should share with high-risk patients, it isn't directly caused by the virus.
As a healthcare provider, we're sure you're already receiving questions from patients about the lasting effects of the virus. There is now some initial research around how the COVID-19 virus affects the human eye, even after it's passed on from the body. We collected this research to see what relevant parts you would want to share with your patient base.
