Discharge from the eyes and tears are a potential source of contamination. The eye is a route of exposure.

So, in order to reduce the spread of the virus, do not rub or touch your eyes.

Can COVID-19 Coronavirus be spread through the eyes?

Information about COVID-19 Coronavirus

Sensitivity to lights, irritation, redness and discharge may all be signs that the COVID-19 Coronavirus has

infected the eyes. Other conditions, though, can also cause these same symptoms.

What are symptoms that COVID-19 Coronavirus has infected the eyes?

COVID-19 Coronavirus

According to the latest information, every new case of COVID-19 Coronavirus will produce another three to

four new cases.

"Apart from the death rate, the secondary attack rate of transmission of a virus is an important number to

monitor. This number (R0, pronounced R-nought or r-zero) serves as an indicator of how easy the disease

spreads from person-to-person, as indicated by its reproductive number, which represents the average

number of people who will catch the disease from a single infected person. An outbreak with a reproductive

number of below 1.0 will gradually disappear. As of February 10, 2020, the R0 of COVID-19 has been reported

as high as 4.08. Preliminary studies had estimated R0 to be between 1.5 and 3.5. Based on these numbers, on

average every case of COVID-19 would create three to four new cases".

Why is COVID-19 Coronavirus so contagious?

Why is physical distancing important in flattening the curve for COVID-19?

Bright Eye Care & Vision Development is providing this information to keep our patients informed about our nation's fight against COVID-19 Coronavirus.

"The virus is transmitted person-to-person through either direct contact or an exchange of bodily fluids. A

new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on March 17, 2020 found that viable virus could

be detected up to three hours later in the air, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up

to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel".

COVID-19 is a new virus that has never occurred in people before. As a result, we do not have treatments to

fight it or vaccines to prevent it. Our bodies are highly susceptible to the COVID-19 Coronavirus

because of the novel nature of the virus.
