    The current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV2 has generated an urgency to understand the implications of this disease in the eye. Possible retinal involvement by SARS-CoV2 infection has been a topic of heated debate. Objective: To determine whether retinal abnormalities can be identified on Optical Computed Tomography (OCT) in convalescent patients following COVID-19 infection. Methodology: This is a prospective, case controlled study that recruited COVID-19 patients who were admitted to the United Christian Hospital Hong Kong, China. At 2 months post-recovery, patients’ visual acuity, refraction were measured. Spectraldomain OCT of the macula to retinal nerve fiber layer and enhanced depth imaging were performed. Age-matched and refraction-matched healthy individuals that were not infected with COVID.. View More»
