Investigation of the ocular microbiome in subjects with healthy and diseased eyes (H-29110)



We are recruiting individuals with healthy eyes to participate in a study to determine the type and number of bacteria on the surface of the eye. 

This involves performing a brief eye examination and taking a sample by swabbing the surface of the eye and eyelids. There are no risks to you or your vision. Eligible participants must be 18 years and older and not be taking any antibiotics for at least 3 months prior to participation.

You will be reimbursed for your time.

IRB: H-29110
