This is a lecture I gave the Ophthalmology residents this morning on the topic of endophthalmitis--its diagnosis, management and prognosis Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube Phthisis bulbi is an ocular condition characterized by severe eye damage. Also called end-stage eye, this condition is related to a variety of causes that lead to scarring, inflammation, and globe. Endophthalmitis is an inflammatory condition of the intraocular cavities (ie, the aqueous and/or vitreous humor) usually caused by infection. Noninfectious (sterile) endophthalmitis may result from various causes such as retained native lens material after an operation or from toxic agents Endophthalmitis can happen when a foreign object enters and contaminates the eye or when an infection from another part of the body spreads to the eye. Eye surgery is one way foreign objects have an opportunity to cause endophthalmitis. If you've recently undergone eye surgery and the pain is getting worse, it could be a sign of endophthalmitis
Endophthalmitis is a devastating ocular inflammatory process that can lead to blindness. In endophthalmitis, there is inflammation of the vitreous cavity along with the retinal and uveal components of the eye. In the vast majority of cases of endophthalmitis, inflammation is triggered by an infectious agent panophthalmitis: [ pan″of-thal-mi´tis ] inflammation of all the eye structures or tissues
Post-operative endophthalmitis Kaiser et al. in their presentation at the 2007 Vail Vitrectomy meeting reported 0.23% incidence of endophthalmitis in 3103 consecutive eyes under-going MIVS. This is in contrast to only one case of endophthalmitis in 5498 consecutive 20-gauge vitrectomies (an incidence of 0.0018%) performe Structure. Some of the fibers begin to clump together, clouding areas of the lens, and leading to the loss of transparency. According to one study, after age 75, 39% of men, and 46% percent of women in the U.S. have visually significant cataracts. Cataracts produce a gradual, painless, progressive loss of vision, and many patients are unaware. Postoperative endophthalmitis is defined as severe inflammation involving both the anterior and posterior segments of the eye after intraocular surgery. Typically, postoperative endophthalmitis is caused by the perioperative introduction of microbial organisms into the eye either from the patient's normal conjunctival and skin flora or from c.. Endophthalmitis. Endophthalmitis is a purulent inflammation of intraocular fluids and adjacent structures usually due to infection. The USG shows mild to moderate amplitude point spikes in the vitreous which are very similar to vitreous hemorrhage. Clinical evidence of inflammation, hypopyon and vitritis with recent penetrating trauma or ocular.
. Post-surgical endophthalmitis can be divided into acute (<6 weeks post-op) or delayed (>6 weeks post-op). Acute post-surgical endophthalmitis can be caused by Staph. epidermidis, Staph. aureus, or Streptococcus species Acute retinal necrosis (ARN) is an inflammatory condition which may present as panuveitis. The principal causative viral agents have been found to be Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) as well as Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing of intraocular fluid Discussion. The increasing frequency of intravitreal anti-VEGF use for the treatment of type 1 ROP following the publication of the BEAT-ROP6 and RAINBOW trials3 necessitates a practical protocol for both the actual injection and follow-up for these patients.

Vitrectomy is a surgical procedure undertaken by a specialist where the vitreous humor gel that fills the eye cavity is removed to provide better access to the retina. This allows for a variety of repairs, including the removal of scar tissue, laser repair of retinal detachments and treatment of macular holes In contrast to endophthalmitis the development of retinal detachment was significantly associated with open globe injuries, larger lacerations (>10mm) and delayed presentation as compared to closed globe injuries or smaller lacerations (Table 6). Other findings seen in a few patients included macular edema (40), Choroidal rupture (22), macular. Fungal pneumonias can resemble COVID-19. Other fungal diseases, such as Valley fever (coccidioidomycosis), histoplasmosis, and blastomycosis, can cause fever, cough, and shortness of breath, similar to COVID-19 and bacterial pneumonias. 21 These fungi live in soil. People become infected by breathing in fungi present in the air Blepharitis (blef-uh-RYE-tis) is inflammation of the eyelids. Blepharitis usually affects both eyes along the edges of the eyelids. Blepharitis commonly occurs when tiny oil glands near the base of the eyelashes become clogged, causing irritation and redness
Moraxella species other than M. catarrhalis are unusual pathogens in humans. Several reports have emphasized the role of other Moraxella as ocular pathogens. These bacteria cause conjunctivitis, keratitis and, rarely, endophthalmitis.99-101 Most episodes of Moraxella keratitis have predisposing local ocular pathology Acute Vision Loss. Loss of vision is usually considered acute if it develops within a few minutes to a couple of days. It may affect one or both eyes and all or part of a visual field. Patients with small visual field defects (eg, caused by a small retinal detachment) may describe their symptoms as blurred vision . The injured or operated eye is the exciting eye and the contralateral eye is the sympathizing eye. The concept was first described by Hippocrates and the earliest. The Endophthalmitis Vitrectomy Study (EVS)  applies only to post-cataract endophthalmitis. The study states that patients did better with a vitrectomy and injection of intravitreal antibiotics when the vision is light perception or worse. If vision is hand motions or better, then patients with a TAP (vitreous biopsy and culture) and.
Severe keratitis may lead to corneal perforation due to stromal necrosis and thinning. This is an ocular emergency. A larger perforation is an indication for a graft. The purpose of penetrating keratoplasty performed in the acute setting is to maintain the integrity of the globe and to prevent endophthalmitis. The graft often fails and scarring. Klebsiella pneumoniae is a well known human nosocomial pathogen. Most community-acquired K pneumoniae infections cause pneumonia or urinary tract infections.

Staphylococcus lugdunensis is a coagulase-negative staphylococcus (CoNS). Like other CoNS, S. lugdunensis in humans ranges from a harmless skin commensal to a life-threatening pathogen (as with infective endocarditis).Unlike other CoNS, however, S. lugdunensis can cause severe disease reminiscent of the virulent infections frequently attributable to Staphylococcus aureus 
Lens-induced glaucoma may occur as either secondary angle-closure or open-angle glaucoma.The angle-closure can be caused by lens swelling (phacomorphic glaucoma) or lens dislocation (ectopia lentis). The open-angle glaucoma include glaucoma related to: leakage of lens proteins through the capsule of a mature or hypermature cataract (phacolytic glaucoma), obstruction of the trabecular meshwork.

It is composed of a front plate with a stem, which houses the optical portion of the device, a back plate and a titanium locking c-ring. It is available in type I and type II formats What Is The Big Deal About A Bleb? With traditional glaucoma surgery (trabeculectomy), a blister-like fluid collection (called a bleb ) must be present on the surface of the eye for the surgery to work. Aqueous fluid (the fluid inside the eye) flows through the fistula into this bleb where it then finds its way out of the eye

Encephalitis (en-sef-uh-LIE-tis) is inflammation of the brain. There are several causes, but the most common is a viral infection. Encephalitis often causes only mild flu-like signs and symptoms — such as a fever or headache — or no symptoms at all. Sometimes the flu-like symptoms are more severe. Encephalitis can also cause confused. Patients with diabetes have an increased incidence of ocular infections including blepharitis, endophthalmitis, conjunctivitis and mucormycosis. Cataracts tend to develop earlier and progress more. Many methods have been described to allow scleral fixation. Experienced surgeons have achieved excellent results with trans-sclerally sutured PCIOLs. Common to all scleral fixation techniques is the need to cover, bury or rotate suture knots to prevent overlying conjunctival erosion and subsequent endophthalmitis Periocular routes exploit the permeability of sclera for retinal drug delivery, and they are particularly useful for administering sustained-release systems of potent drugs. This review discusses the various periocular routes with respect to their anatomical location, pharmacokinetics, safety and mechanisms of drug delivery Presentation - redness, pain, photophobia, foreign body sensation and reduced visual acuity.

Cataract Incisions: Wound Construction. Wound construction is critical in modern cataract surgery because this initial step of the procedure serves as the foundation on which the rest of the surgical steps are built. A poorly constructed wound will make subsequent steps more difficult and increase the risk of complications Dacryocystitis. Dacryocystitis is an inflammation of the lacrimal sac, often as a result of infection. It may be acute or chronic. For anatomical reasons, it occurs more frequently on the left side. An ocular origin for inflammation of the lacrimal system is less common than a nasal origin. Rarely, congenital dacryocystitis can occur The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) endophthalmitis study documented a significant reduction in the rate of endophthalmitis using intracameral cefuroxime compared to a topical third-generation fluoroquinolone antibiotic.
