Retinal tissue & microvasculature loss in COVID19 infection: Retinal volume was signif⬇️in outer 3 mm of macula in severe COVID19 group (p = 0.02). Total retinal vessel density was signif⬇️in severe COVID-19 vs normal/ mild COVID19 (p = 0.004 & 0.0057).

The #longcovid sleep stuff was interesting - thanks to all who shared ideas - it all helps.

How about eyes folks?

Since covid, have you noticed:

  1. Deterioration in your vision
  2. Dryness
  3. Sensitivity to brightness
  4. Pain
  5. Flashes, floaters etc.
