COS and ACUPO Guidelines for Ophthalmic Care during COVID-19 Pandemic

March 20,2020

Background

We are in the midst of a global crisis, which changes daily. Our federal, provincial, local, hospital, and university authorities provide mandates and recommendations that are applicable to the practice of medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of the guidelines below is not to replace those mandates and recommendations, but to add those specifically relevant to the practice of ophthalmology. The guidelines reflect a collaborative effort among the Canadian Ophthalmological Society, the Association of Canadian University Professors of Ophthalmology, and subspecialty societies. The American Academy of Ophthalmology guidelines at www.aao.org/headline/alert-important-coronavirus-context  are also useful for the context of ophthalmic care, and were useful in the development of the guidelines below.
