Purpose: to analyze the results of microinvasive surgical treatment of children with post-traumatic endophthalmitis. Patients and Methods. Under our observation there were 5 children aged 9-13 years with penetrating wounds of the cornea. All children referred to the clinic with clinical manifestations of endophthalmitis. Visual acuity was reduced from 0,01 up to light perception with the correct projection. Results. Lensvitrectomy allowed to visually detect foreign bodies in vitreous and to remove them through the corneal access. Finished the operation by the intraocular introduction of antibiotics and corticosteroids. Criteria of efficiency of treatment: relief ofthe infectious process, the transparency of optical media, lack of subatrophy ofthe eyeball during the observation period of 3-5 months. Conclusion. Timely primary surgical rehabilitation of children with post-traumatic endophthalmitis appropriate, despite the severity of the injury.
