Ophthalmic Manifestations of Coronavirus

Ophthalmic Manifestations of Coronavirus

The global pandemic caused by the coronavirus has had far-reaching and long-lasting impacts. The disease's entire breadth has yet to be discovered. Initially, there were multiple anecdotal and published reports of eye redness and irritation in COVID-19 patients, implying that conjunctivitis is an ocular symptom of SARS-CoV-2 infection. COVID-19 has been linked to uveitic, retinovascular, and neuro-ophthalmic illness, according to new research. Based on the findings in the patients' eyes, it's been indicated that unprotected eyes can also become infected with the SAR-CoV-2 virus. The drugs used to treat COVID-19 have ocular side effects as well. Although long-term treatment of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can cause retinal damage, this is neither expected or seen with COVID-19.
