Abstract

Endophthalmitis refers to inflammation of the inner coats of the eye.it is one of the dreadiest complications for an ophthalmologist. It can present with floaters, ocular pain and redness, and a diminution of vision. Depending on the presence of organisms or toxins, it can be classified into infective and non-infective. Infective endophthalmitis, caused by microbes such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites, can be further subclassified, depending on the entry route, into an exogenous or endogenous approach. Endophthalmitis via exogenous route occurs when the microbes enter the sterile eye environment postoperatively (post cataract or post intravitreal injections) or post-traumatic while endogenous endophthalmitis results from the bloodstream, carrying the infection to the eye. This review aims at highlighting the recent advances in diagnosing, preventing, and treating endophthalmitis. We have gathered our information from various articles published in PubMed. Through this article, we would like to upgrade our scientific knowledge, widen our research field, and pave the way to follow newer trends to combat this grave diagnosis
