Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), a highly contagious pathogen, led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Ocular secretions can be one of the possible causes of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, and it should not be ignored. In the group of severe COVID-19 complications, ocular manifestations are underreported, and elucidation of ocular signs among COVID-19 patients is necessary. According to many research studies, conjunctivitis and sore eyes were the most reported ocular symptoms. Many studies have limitations such as low sample size or lack of proper findings, and much more studies need to be performed for a better inference.
