A study looked at 17 patients who suffered non-infectious endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection of kenalog, and none suffered any serious sequelae like vision loss. This should give some comfort to us and our patients when discussing these injections. On a personal note, I find it remarkable that in the space of a few years, these injections, which would have raised many eyebrows when I was a resident 17 years ago, are now considered routine. Go figure.
