Guidelines on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during COVID-19 Pandemic for Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery
The Canadian Society of Oculoplastic Surgery has evaluated the current literature assessing the risk to ophthalmologists who perform oculoplastics procedures during and after the current pandemic.

The attached statement has been endorsed by the COS Board of Directors. These comments and recommendations are based on the “conditions on the ground” that exist today at the time of this writing.
