3 Things to know about the coronavirus & your eyes

According to All About Vision, here are some precautions to take to lower your risk of coming into contact with COVID-19.

  1. The virus can easily spread through contact with your eye. Avoid touching your face and wash your hands regularly.
  2. Pink eye symptoms could be an indicator of the virus. Pink eye, also called viral conjunctivitis can present with upper respiratory infections like the cold and flu and may be a symptom of the coronavirus.
  3. Opt for glasses, not contacts. If you wear contact lenses, consider wearing glasses to avoid unnecessary eye touching. If you prefer contacts, make sure you’re following the proper steps to keeping your contacts clean.
