To the Editor We read with great interest the article “Ocular Findings in Infants With Microcephaly Associated With Presumed Zika Virus Congenital Infection in Salvador, Brazil” by de Paula Freitas et al1 as well as the accompanying Invited Commentary “Zika Virus Infection and the Eye” by Jampol and Goldstein.2 The authors are to be complimented for addressing the ophthalmologic need and building on their previous report of ophthalmic findings associated with Zika virus (ZIKV) in 3 infants.3
