Answer

Ocular manifestations of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have historically been common. While approximately 70-80% of HIV-infected patients have been treated for an HIV-associated eye disorder during the course of their illness, recently, these numbers have appeared to decrease with the development of increasingly efficacious HIV antiviral cocktails.
