Description

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. To read the paper head to:
