The COVID-19 Pandemic from an Ophthalmologist's Perspective.
Trends Mol Med. 2020 06; 26(6):529-531.TM

Abstract

The current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is rapidly spreading around the world. The first doctor to report this new disease was an ophthalmologist: this exemplifies the role of ophthalmologists in an infectious disease pandemic. Here we review how severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) affects the eye and discuss implications for ophthalmologists.
