The aim of the research was to identify the role of bacteria in eys infactions, which was isolated from people suffering from eye infections. The clinical isolates were developed on (Blood agar ,chocolate agar ,MacConey agar)  media and then characterized by vitek 2 system .Five types of bacteria  were isolated. 100 samples were collected There were 83 positive isolates for bacterial transplantation. The highest incidence of mycoplasma in the age group (1-10 years), bacteria appeared E.coli in 22 cases, K.pneumoniae in 20 cases, S.aureus in19 cases, S.pneumoniae in 15 cases and N.gonorrhoeae in 7 cases.
