Propionibacterium acnes was isolated from (%) of the conjunctivas, and Peptostreptococcus species were isolated from 80 (%) of the conjunctivas. Comparison with the bacteriology of 96 normal eyes showed that anaerobes play a much greater role as etiological agents of conjunctivitis than formerly by: Comparison of the bacteriology of the 96 normal eyes with the bacteriology of the nonmedicated infected eyes shows that anaer-obes play a significantly greater causal role in conjunctivitis thanformerly believed (Table2). The exceptions are P. acnes, lactobacilli, Eubacterium species, and Clostridium species, which appear to be members of Cited by: T H E BACTERIAL FLORA OF T H E NORMAL CONJUNCTIVA WITH COMPARATIVE NASAL CULTURE STUDY ROBERT A.

Well-known and widely used for their hallmark illustrations, Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews bring concepts to vibrant life. Bacteriologic investigations of clinically normal human eyes has demonstrated that the resident microbiota in the conjunctival sac is similar to the microbiota of nearby structures (9, 11, 12, 15), with an exchange occurring between these floras (11), although the levels of viable microorganisms may be quite low in the conjunctiva (9). With this in view, the following experiments were performed. Experiments The site selected for experimentation was the conjunctival sac of the normal rabbit. The rabbit was purposely cho sen for this work because the conjuncti val sac is of good size, the cornea is not sensitive, and the nictitating mechan ism is relatively : G. Howard Gowen. The conjunctival sac is the small space between the eyeball and the eyelid. You would access this space, such as for the purpose of adding an eye-drop or ophthalmic ointment by pulling down your.

The normal adult globe is approximately spherical, with an anteroposterior diameter averaging mm. THE CONJUNCTIVA The conjunctiva is the thin, transparent mucous membrane that covers the posterior surface of the lids (the palpebral conjunctiva) and the anterior surface of the sclera (the bulbar conjunctiva).File Size: 1MB.

Bacterial flora of the normal by:   The normal conjunctival microbiota has not been well characterized, but does exist. One small study (part of the Ocular Microbiome project) found twelve genera that were consistently present in the conjunctiva. 4 These microbes are thought to .
