In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, ophthalmologists have requested a master list of procedures that are generally performed in operating rooms at hospitals or ambulatory surgery centers as “urgent” or “emergent” procedures.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology has collated these procedures, along with their more common likely indications, into this single list. This list is not meant to cover all indications or all potential procedures but to include those, in the opinion of the major subspecialty societies listed, that are more commonly performed by ophthalmologists in practice.
For additional information visit the Academy's resource page Coronavirus and Eye Care.

A list of urgent and emergent ophthalmic procedures listed by The American Academy of Ophthalmology is given below in the pictures.
