FERNANDEZ-VIZCAYA, Oscar et al. Guidelines for refractive surgery with excimer and femtosecond lasers and for treatment with cross-linking during the COVID-19 pandemic in Mexico. Rev. mex. oftalmol [online]. 2021, vol.95, n.4, pp.161-166.  Epub July 30, 2021. ISSN 2604-1227.

The severe pandemic caused by the respiratory coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is currently a major problem in all elective surgery clinics, including those that perform refractive surgery, which has been rescheduling most of their procedures for a long time due to high morbidity and mortality. Currently, due to changes in the knowledge of the disease, as well as protective measures with barriers, many refractive surgery clinics have restarted their procedures without yet having a consensus about protection for doctors and patients. This work aims to adapt the international information of the existing guidelines, as well as to provide recommendations that can be applied and be useful for the practice of these procedures in Mexico.
