We present a case of methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus metastatic endophthalmitis (SAME) that developed from a bacteremia. We compare this to a literature review of similar cases and report unique characteristics of SAME. We discuss important considerations in the work-up and treatment of endogenous endophthalmitis.
