We report a case of 61-year-old male who presented with scleral abscess, an unusual complication following intravitreal bevacizumab and triamcinolone injection. Patient was presented with redness, pain, foreign body sensation, and swelling in left eye 1 week post-intravitreal injection for second opinion. We treated him with topical and oral antibiotics. In our case, the small, localized abscess was confined to the site of the intravitreal injection, required no surgical intervention, and resolved on oral and topical antibiotics. To the best of our knowledge, scleral abscess has not been reported in literature as complication post-intravitreal injection, hence we report this case.
