One of the most common causes of eye infections is bacteria. The symptoms of these infections in humans can vary from mild to life-threatening complications. This study was conducted to determine the Gram negative bacterial pathogens that infect the eyes of people whether wearing lenses or not & investigate the inhibitory effect of some antibiotics and compare them with the antibacterial effect of black & green tea extracts , honey (at 10%) and CFS of Lactobacillus casei that isolated from milk of healthy mother against the pathogens isolated from the eye by using the agar diffusion technique. A total of 30 samples collected from infected eyes by swabs and transferred to the laboratory for microbial culturing. 20 different isolated species of Gram negative bacteria were identified by Vitek-2 system are (Enterobacter cloacae, Pseudomonas luteola, Leclercia adecarboxylata & pantoea agglomerans). All natural agents showed varying effectiveness against the bacteria isolated from the eye , while the most of isolates were resisted to antibiotics , Honey & CFS of Lactobacillus casei were most effective against growth of all the test organisms. Black and green tea showed less effect than honey & probiotic against bacteria. Our results showed that a lot of the commercial antibiotics were not effective on the tested organisms. Whereas the natural agents that used in this study had higher inhibitory effect against bacteria that isolates from ocular infections than the selected antibiotics .Further in vivo studies for the confirmation the antibacterial effect of natural agents that were used in this study.
