  1. 1. BY: Maria Mandese Taylor Bacterial Keratitis By: Maria Taylor Meghan
  2. 2. The disease! <ul><li>FOR ALL YOU CONTACT LENS WEARERS </li></ul><ul><li>Bacterial Keratitis is mainly caused from an infection of contact lens misuse or complication of contact lens use! </li></ul><ul><li>It is also a result of an infection of the cornea! </li></ul><ul><li>Result of injury to the eye/ cornea! </li></ul>

  4. 4. BACTERIA! <ul><li>Some of the bacteria responsible for this disease is streptococcus, pseudomonas, Enterobacteriaceae and staphylococcus species! </li></ul>*A break in the cornea allows for these organisms and bacteria to enter and cause an infection
  5. 5. IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE! <ul><li>Approximately 25,000 Americans develop bacterial keratitis annually! </li></ul><ul><li>Can occur in </li></ul><ul><li>both children and </li></ul><ul><li>and adults </li></ul><ul><li>at any age! </li></ul>
  6. 6. NO FUN AT ALL! <ul><li>It can develop very quickly! </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid progression in the corneal destruction…..may be complete in only 24 to 48 hours! </li></ul><ul><li>Can be very painful! </li></ul>
  7. 7. GROSS! <ul><li>From Bacterial Keratitis, the person is likely to have a thick, ropy, mucopurulent discharge from the eye! </li></ul><ul><li>Can cause tearing of the cornea and light sensitivity </li></ul><ul><li>Also can cause anterior segment inflammation around the eye! </li></ul><ul><li>Can possibly reduce vision! </li></ul><ul><li>Bacterial Keratitis can cause cloudiness of the eye. </li></ul>

  9. 9. TWO TYPES! <ul><li>* Superficial keratitis </li></ul><ul><li>-involves upper most layer surface of the cornea </li></ul><ul><li>-when healed there is no scarring! </li></ul>*Stromal Keratitis or Interstital Keratitis -affects the deeper layers of the cornea. -will be scarring after healed
  10. 10. RELATED DISEASES <ul><li>Shingles </li></ul><ul><li>Dry eyes </li></ul><ul><li>Acquired immuno deficiency syndrome </li></ul>
  11. 11.
