COV Eye D

Veena Danthuluri & Maria Grant (2020)

“There is a benefit to using eye protection for healthcare workers and the general public and studies suggest that the lack of eye protection when other precautions are taken can result in contraction of the viral disease.”

COVID19 has been detected “in ocular swabs indicating the presence of virus in the eye as long as 27 days after initial symptoms, even with concomitant absence of virus in nasal swabs (Colavita et al., 2020).”

“Given the need for contact lens wearers to touch their face and eyes on application and removal of their contact lenses, it is understandable that questions have been raised about the safety of continuing with contact lens use during the pandemic (Jones et al., 2020)”

“Consistent with guidance for other types of illness, particularly those of the respiratory tract, no contact lens wearer with active COVID-19 should remain wearing their contact lenses (Sankaridurg et al., 2004; Sweeney et al., 2004; Willcox et al., 2004). This is the time to cease contact lens wear and revert to spectacles.”
— Jones et al., 2020

Eyes & #COVIDー19

Reminder…

“if someone becomes infected while wearing a mask, they are more likely to have a milder or asymptomatic infection than someone who becomes infected while not wearing a mask” (Gandhi & Marr, 2020)
