Intraocular lens removal or not during vitrectomy for acute infectious endophthalmitis after cataract surgery

Publication Date Jun 18, 2022


At present, the incidence of infectious endophthalmitis after cataract surgery has been significantly reduced, but it is still a serious complication. Removal or not of the intraocular lens (IOL) during vitrectomy in cases with a moderate or severe inflammation is controversial. In order to call upon more discussion, we publish the article entitled “Timely vitrectomy without intraocular lens removal for acute endophthalmitis after cataract surgery” written by Guo et al in this issue. With recent advanced vitrectomy techniques, and critical measures for management of risk factors related to occurrence of infection, IOL remaining during timely vitrectomy for acute endophthalmitis can possibly be safe and effective in selected cases.
