• Within the last 6 months, three cases of infectious endophthalmitis following sutureless cataract surgery have been referred to us. Two of these cases followed uncomplicated sutureless phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation. One case was complicated by a postoperative hyphema with additional surgery for clot removal 2 days following the initial procedure.
