  • A long-lasting loss of sense of smell and taste are some of the now well-established ailments of people hit by post-Covid. But some people are also reporting problems with their sight.

  • As reported by Swedish Radio's science department, researchers led by Professor Neil Lagali in Linköping are currently investigating why some people experience eye problems months after recovering from Covid-19.

  • "My sight got really bad and it was hard to read. When I was reading a text, I read a line, and when I was going to the next line I couldn't find it," Marie Svensson, who will take part in the study, tells Radio Sweden.
