Contact lens-associated Bacillus species keratitis
Pinna A., Sechi L. A., Zanetti S., Carta F.
Bacillus organisms are a rare but serious cause of endophthalmitis and corneal ulcers. B. cereus, in particular, has emerged as one of the most virulent organisms to affect the eye. There are only a few reports of corneal ulcers caused by Bacillus organisms associated with the use of contact lenses. The various presenting clinical settings, the treatment, and a rational approach to the prevention of contact lens-associated Bacillus species keratitis are reviewed.
