Endophthalmitis due to Bacillus species can be associated with devastating consequences. In the present case series, two-each cases of postoperative and traumatic endophthalmitis were included. Prompt surgical intervention was done in all cases. Bacillus cereus and Bacillus subtilis were isolated in 3 cases and 1 case, respectively. All isolates showed 100% sensitivity to vancomycin, ciprofloxacin, and clindamycin. In spite of early intervention, final functional and anatomical outcomes were poor in all four cases.
