Can a viral disease like Corona affect the outcome of the eye treatment?

The virus is not expected to directly influence the healing process on the eye. The result should therefore not be impaired in the short and long term.

Are there any special measures that patients need to take with regard to Corona?

In principle, the same protection and precautionary measures apply to the coronavirus as to normal virus flu. It is simply important to be cautious and prudent in the immediate vicinity in order to minimize the risk of infection.
