Corneal Ulcers

The most common causes of corneal ulcers include grampositive organisms, such as staphylococci and streptococci; and gram-negative organisms, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterobacteriaceae. Less common gram-negative organisms include Bacteroides. Risk factors for corneal ulcers include patients with corneal erosions, persistent epithelial defects, impaired immunologic mechanisms, contact lenses, chronic topical or systemic steroid use, diabetes, and alcoholism. Corneal ulcers require consultation with an ophthalmologist for appropriate culture and antibiotic therapy.
