2020 Update re: Coronavirus and the Eyes
As of 03/22/2021, there is very little evidence of the COVID 19 causing virus residing on the ocular surface, particularly in those who are asymptomatic. If you are interested, please visit this review of Coronavirus and the Ocular surface to access the primary research regarding what is known. It is summarized as follows:
"Coronaviruses have been rarely isolated from tears or conjunctival swabs. The evidence suggests coronaviruses are unlikely to bind to ocular surface cells to initiate infection. Additionally, hypotheses that the virus could travel from the nasopharynx or through the conjunctival capillaries to the ocular surface during infection are probably incorrect. Conjunctivitis and isolation of the virus from the ocular surface occur only rarely, and overwhelmingly in patients with confirmed COVID-19. Necessary precautions to prevent person-to-person transmission should be employed in clinical practice throughout the pandemic, and patients should be reminded to maintain good hygiene practices."

At Spartan Vision Center, we take special care to wear PPE at all times in office and all patients are required to wear masks. If you do not have a mask, we are happy to give you a disposable surgical mask upon arrival. Though mask wear reduces respiratory droplets entering the airborne environment, it is not 100% protective from transmission of the virus. This is why we ask any patient who is symptomatic and/or positive for coronavirus to please call the office immediately and we will work to reschedule your appointment. We conduct thorough screenings prior to all appointment's and it is our expectation that all answers are truthful to maintain the health and safety of the office. Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you soon!
