In December 2019, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) appeared in Wuhan, China. The SARS-CoV-2 virus affects the lungs and other organs and has many different clinical manifestations. Regarding the eye, SARS-CoV-2 is well known to induce conjunctivitis; for example, in a study1 of 38 consecutive patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), 5% had virus-positive conjunctivae and 32% had conjunctivitis. However, whether SARS-CoV-2 can cause significant ocular disease is unknown.2
