Author information

Recent literature suggests that the incidence of postoperative endophthalmitis is variable and may be on the rise. This article reviews established perioperative preventative measures, and discusses some possible causes of postoperative endophthalmitis that may be insufficiently addressed by current risk reduction techniques. This article also considers future measures for reducing the risk of postoperative endophthalmitis.
