OiP: COVID-19 and its impact on eyecare

Professor Leon Davies FCOptom, Editor of OiP, and Professor Shahina Pardhan MCOptom, Director of Vision and Eye Research Institute at ARU, discuss the impact of COVID-19 on eye health and eyecare. They look at the evidence around the link between COVID-19 and sore eyes, photophobia and watery eyes, and the effect of the pandemic on contact lens wearers. They also focus on the need to inform patients of COVID-19-related eye health issues and how and where they can seek advice when suffering from an eye complaint.

Professor Pardhan is co-author of the paper: COVID-19 and its impact on eyecare: a review.
