17.30 -17.40 Introduction to Presumed Infectious Endophthalmitis (PIE)
Case definition and national rates recorded on the NOD John Buchan/Paul Donachie
17.40 – 18:00 What do we know?
What are the risk factors for post-phaco PIE? Charlotte Norridge
What do we know about PIE post-IVI? Martin McKibbin
18.00 - 18.30 What don’t we know that we would like to?
What about the microbiology and choice of antibiotics? Liying Low
What difference did mask wearing in the pandemic make to rates of PIE? Charlotte Norridge
What are the unknown research questions? Group Discussion
18.30 - 19.00 What can we do to improve our PIE rates?
What about outbreaks? When do we know we are getting one? By pure chance, what is the likelihood of clustering of cases? What should trigger stopping surgery? John Sparrow
What about other ophthalmic procedures (eg PPV, trabs) that are too low-volume to estimate PIE rates?
Practical steps forward: How to monitor your own PIE rates. John Buchan
