Endophthalmitis is a severe inflammation of the tissues inside the eye. It is normally caused by bacterial or fungal infection that has entered the eye. We take a look at the condition and the current treatments.
Endophthalmitis can eventually lead to permanent loss of vision if it not treated correctly and quickly. It may occur in immunocompromised patients or those with diabetes.
Endophthalmitis symptoms of may include:
- Decreased vision
- Sensitivity to light
- Increasing redness or swelling, especially after eye surgery
To effectively diagnose endophthalmitis, your ophthalmologist will need to conduct a complete eye examination. Further diagnostic tests, such as ultrasound, culture of intraocular fluids, and laboratory studies may also be needed.
We can arrange for you to see a leading consultant ophthalmologist who specialises in treating vitreo-retinal conditions, including endophthalmitis. You consultant can assess and diagnose your condition, and advise you about urgent treatment procedures that would be most appropriate for you.
However, despite the most aggressive treatments, it may not be possible to restore normal vision in some endophthalmitis patients.
