The study noted: “Conjunctivitis has been reported in people suffering from COVID-19.
“However, many ocular symptoms are associated with the term ‘conjunctivitis’ which may be misleading.
“It is also unknown whether ocular symptoms were different in chronic sufferers of anterior eye diseases, when they were experienced or how long they lasted for compared with other COVID-19 symptoms.
“The three most common ocular symptoms experienced by participants were photophobia (18 percent), sore eyes (16 percent) and itchy eyes (17 percent).
