Thirty-five patients (35 eyes) with traumatic endophthalmitis were treated. Ultraviolet exposure of autoblood was used in 16 patients, the rest 19 were treated routinely (antibiotics, etc.). Use of ultraviolet exposure of the blood in combined therapy of traumatic endophthalmitis more rapidly (12.6 vs. 22.1 days) and effectively (93.7 vs. 68.4%) arrested intraocular infection and more often preserved the objective vision (31.3 vs. 10.5%).
