COVID-19 Changed Prevalence, Disease Spectrum and Management Strategies of Ocular Trauma

Abstract: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has significantly impacted the health of people around the world and has reshaped social behaviors and clinical practice. The purpose of this perspective is to provide epidemiologists and clinicians with information about how the spectrum of ocular trauma diseases changed, as well as to optimize management for improving patient prognosis during this crisis.

“…Indeed, several prior reports have focused on shifts in the disease spectrum during and after the COVID-19 pandemic regarding the incidence of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, 11 mental health disorders, 12 and ocular trauma. 10 Alkharsah et al demonstrated a twofold increase in RSV-positive cases in 2021 compared to the average positive cases from previous years. 11 Researchers found that COVID-19 outbreaks and related nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) may have reduced influenza in Southern and Northern China and the United States by 79.2%, 79.4%, and 67.2%.…”

Many countries adopted shelter‐in‐place policies to curb the pandemic 10 . We hypothesized that this global paradigm shift may similarly have resulted in changes in the spectrum of neonatal diseases treated in hospitals.…”
