The aim of this study was to determine the in vitro antibiotic susceptibilities of various bacteria isolated from contact lens storage cases of asymptomatic wearers.  For this purpose, twenty-two bacteria isolates were subjected to in vitro antibiotic susceptibility using Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method.   Four ATCC strains of different genus of bacteria were used as control.  The results obtained from the current study showed that gentamicin was the most effective antibiotic against all bacteria tested.   In addition, all bacteria tested in this study were resistant to ampicillin, methicillin, penicillin G and vancomycin. According to the results continuous monitoring of antibiotic susceptibilities of bacteria isolated from contact lens storage cases of asymptomatic wearers are needed.
