"The Zika virus can live in eyes, researchers said Tuesday, after conducting experiments on mice that may explain why some patients develop ocular disease and in some cases become blind. The study, published in the journal Cell Reports, studied the effects of Zika virus infection in the eyes of fetal, newborn and adult mice. "Our study suggests that the eye could be a reservoir for Zika virus," said Michael Diamond, a professor at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis who is one of the study's senior authors. "We need to consider whether people with Zika have infectious virus in their eyes and how long it actually persists," he added, noting that patients could spread the infection through their tears."
