Abstract

In our study of 54 suspected cases of endophthalmitis, vitreous aspiration was more sensitive in making a culture-proven diagnosis than anterior chamber paracentesis; Staphylococcus epidermidis was a more common cause of endophthalmitis than previously appreciated; and intraocular antibiotics in the recommended dosage are reasonably safe clinically and add a new dimension to the treatment of endophthalmitis.
