Background

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.   Using the best evidence available, guidelines on the minimum personal protective equipment that surgeons should employ were developed. 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.
