Abstract

The route of transmission of COVID-19 is not yet fully understood but is thought to be mainly respiratory. The primary symptoms of COVID - 19 include fever, sore throat and loss of appetite. In severe condition it causes difficulty in breathing. There have been enormous evidences through case study that the patient having positive to COVID - 19 had ocular finding such as Conjunctivitis, Conjunctival Hyperaemia, Lacrimation (epiphora), Chemosis. Similarly, it has also been suggested that redness in the eye associated with fever can be a poor sign of COVID- 19 . The RT-PCR should be performed in this case. Eye care practitioner along with patient should take the safety measures to minimize the risk of transmission via person to person. Additional, Invasive ophthalmic procedure like Applanation Tonometry, Gonioscopy should be avoided .
