Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) is the most common cause of acute-onset post–cataract surgery endophthalmitis.1 Fluoroquinolones are frequently used prophylactically (either topical or intracameral) in an attempt to reduce the rates of postoperative endophthalmitis. In this study, the susceptibilities of CoNS-causing endophthalmitis to fluoroquinolones over a 22-year period at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, Florida, are reported.
