Changes in alpha diversity in time periods sampled of all samples (n = 227). Observed ASVs (a) and Chao1 estimates (b). Significant differences in alpha-diversity were identified between the sampling periods where the greatest diversity was found in time period 4. After initial swabbing for baseline community, the diversity significantly decreased and recovered over time in subsequent samplings. The initial swabbing, would be deemed as the first perturbation or disruption to the ocular microbiota
