Community transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19) in the United States on February 26, 2020, and the rapid spread that followed forced patients, providers, payors, and policy makers to adapt to an unprecedented, nearly instant, and enormous demand for virtual care. Although few US ophthalmology practices incorporated telemedicine prior to COVID-19, its use has now become the norm. Regarding the use of synchronous patient-to-provider virtual visits (SPPVV) in pediatric ophthalmology, we have pooled our collective experience at three academic practices across the country to describe initial workflows, technology solutions, use cases, and barriers to care.
