Resumé

Endophthalmitis is one of the most serious and most dreaded complications in ophthalmology. It is most often seen as a complication to intraocular surgery and especially after cataract surgery. Approximately 90% of the cases of endophthalmitis are caused by bacteria. Symptoms and signs may include pain, blurred vision, and hypopyon. Intravitreal injection of antibiotics in combination with vitrectomy or vitreous tap is the mainstay in the treatment of endophthalmitis. Prompt recognition and intervention are essential in preserving the vision of the affected eye in the case of endophthalmitis.
