Abstract

The coronavirus COVID 19 is a highly contagious disease, and with the gradual return to normal life, a second wave of contamination, endangering the lives of the elderly, especially in countries where access to the specific vaccine against the virus remains limited. We report our experience at Nour Ophthalmology clinic about the management of patients during this pandemic.

Keywords:Coronavirus; Covid-19; Specific Vaccine; Measles Vaccine

  During the Covid-19 pandemic the management of the flow of patients inside the Nour Ophthalmology Clinic became highly coded by requiring several rules in order to minimize the risk of contamination and spread of the virus. 

Only patients are admitted to the clinic, for that, a specially equipped outdoor waiting room is dedicated to accompanying persons (Figure 1 and 2).

Patients are offered a protective medical gown, a clog and an FFP2 mask at the entrance (Figure 3).

Patients requiring surgery should provide a PCR test and chest x-ray, to benefit from a good treatment avoiding the stress of contamination to the surgeon.
