Abstract

Intravitreal injections of medications have become routine in recent years. One of the most feared sight and even eye-threatening complication of any intraocular procedure is endophthalmitis. This study was designed to investigate whether it is possible for microorganisms to infiltrate the scleral track created by a 30-gauge needle.
