@momee Welcome. I see this is your first post on Mayo Clinic Connect.

Covid-19 is a new virus and little is knows about its organ damage and long-term effects.
Could you tell a little more about what you mean by, "responding to steroid but on tapering"? Did this person contract COVID? Did they have eye issues before?

she had not eye disease , before .
@momee as I mentioned before, Covid-19 is a new virus and little is known of how it affects different organs and long-term repercussions of its contraction.
At many hospitals they have designated specific providers as, Covid-19 providers. These providers are used as consultants for the rest of the hospital system. These sort of providers would best be able to answer your questions.
Have you and the patient discussed your concerns with her provider?
