The Post–Endophthalmitis Vitrectomy Study Era

Arch Ophthalmol. 2002;120(2):233-234. doi:

Drs Sternberg and Martin are to be commended for their recent editorial regarding endophthalmitis therapy.1 I agree with them that poor outcomes result from virulent bacteria and that aggressive therapy (including immediate vitrectomy and intravenous [IV] antibiotics) is indicated for posttraumatic and bleb-associated endophthalmitis. However, I would extend their recommendations to all patients with virulent infections, regardless of endophthalmitis category.
