Note: Ensure that your research is limited to infections not caused by direct trauma to the eye.
Based on your research, respond to the following:
- How does such a sensitive organ protect itself against such common infections?
- What are the main causes for fungal eye infections?
- Why is an immunocompromised host more likely to get a fungal eye infection (excluding traumatic infections)?
- Provide an explanation on how the pressure in an autoclave can influence the temperature and therefore the timing of the sterilization process.
- Compare and contrast the microbial destruction ability of moist versus dry heat. (Note: Use the Microbial Destruction Ability Comparison Template to compare and contrast between moist versus dry heat.)
