​The main eye sign of corona virus is a RED EYE – CONJUNCTIVITISCoronavirus can spread through the eyes Corona virus can also enter eyes by you touching something that has the virus on it — like a table or doorknob — and then touching your eyes. However, If you see someone with pink eye, DO NOT PANIC. It does not mean that the person is infected with coronavirus. Recent study from China suggests that up to one third of people hospitalized with coronavirus experience eye problems, such as viral red/pink eye or conjunctivitis. It's important to know that the virus can spread by touching fluid from an infected person’s eyes, or from objects that carry the fluid. Therefore, a red eye should be assessed and examined by an Eye Specialist urgently. Prevention Measures 1/ Practice safe hand hygiene – hand washing and alcohol rubs2/ Social distancing3/ If you wear contact lenses, consider switching to glasses for a while. 4/ Wearing glasses adds a layer of protection – Consider wearing non-prescription protective glasses5/ Avoid rubbing your eyes. If you notice symptoms, or aren't sure, get a screening.

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your eye’s cornea and/or lens. The curvature of the cornea and/or lens is irregular resulting in blurred and/or distorted vision for near and far distances.


Myopia is nearsightedness. In myopia, close/near objects look clear but distant objects appear are not in focus. Myopia is a common condition. It is an eye focusing disorder, not an eye disease.


In today’s multitasking, info-overloaded world, it’s increasingly common for many of us to work on computer screens for hours, send text messages to friends and then relax by watching YouTube videos. It’s no surprise then that our eyes are often stressed to the point of exhaustion. Focusing on small digital screens, one to three feet away for long periods of time can cause blurred vision, headaches and discomfort as the eye’s internal lens accommodates to maintain focus at these distances. The above also occurs during the development of early presbyopia when the eye is struggling to maintain accommodative effort.
