In December 2020, the largest global vaccination efforts were launched to limit the spread and clinical severity of SARS-CoV-2. Although the vaccines have been reported to be highly efficacious in limiting the impact of SARS-CoV-2, their swift development and emergency use authorizations limited the short and long-term evaluation of rare adverse events in real-world settings. Over the past 20 months, several reports and studies have highlighted the adverse events (such as myocarditis, Guillain–Barré syndrome, etc.) following the administration of these vaccines. In this special edition, we are compiling case reports, series, review articles and studies focused on ophthalmic adverse events following SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations.
The submissions may include:
- Case of rare ophthalmic adverse events following vaccination
- Studies reporting risk of ophthalmic adverse events following vaccine
- Analysis of global databases reporting vaccine-associated ophthalmic adverse events
- Review articles evaluating published literature on ocular adverse events with special emphasis on underlying potential mechanisms.
