Abstract

In March 2020, at the outset of the current pandemic, ESOPRS issued detailed advice on the appropriate procedures that practicing oculoplastic surgeons should consider to limit the transmission of COVID-19, with this information updated in April 2020. This paper highlights the threat to training opportunities for future generations of oculoplastic surgeons, adjustments in healthcare delivery, modifications of scientific activity, and the possible role of telemedicine in oculoplastics.
