International studies showed Streptococcus organism is the most common organism found in intravitreal injections as compared to other intraocular surgery.2 The difference in causative organisms in these two settings has been attributed to the contamination of injection field by aerosolization or droplet spread.2 A reason of streptococcus organism was that most of the intravitreal injection was given without facemask.
