Assessment of grading and isolation of bacterial organisms in Canine Pigmentary keratitis.

Abstract


A total of eighty three corneas of fifty five dogs presented with pigmentary keratitis were evaluated by assessing the grading technique. Pigmentation grade, extent of pigmentation and mean pigment density were calculated in all the corneas. Isolation and identification of the organism from the corneal swabs was done in all the corneas presented with pigmentation.The method of grading of pigmentation was found to be ideal for assessing the efficacy of treatment for pigmentary keratitis and the main organism isolated from the corneal swab was staphylococcus aureus.
