Abstract:

The aim of this study is to isolate and identify the various organisms from cases of infective keratitis obtained from the department of ophthalmology in our college. Ninety six numbers of cases were included in this study, in the duration period of 18 months i.e. from January 2015 to June 2016. The corneal scrapings were processed by bacterial and fungal culture methods and microscopic examination by Gram’s stain and KOH mount. Bacterial isolates were identified by standard biochemical methods. Our study showed higher prevalence of fungal keratitis i.e. 37 (56.9%) in comparison to bacterial keratitis 28 (43.1%).


Keywords: Keratitis,Microbiological Profile,KOH mount.
