Method: Case report. Results: A 14-year-old cosmetic contact lens user presented with a paracentral corneal ulcer in her right eye. The cosmetic lenses were bought online. The cultures from corneal scrapings and contact lenses demonstrated heavy growth of Chryseobacterium meningosepticum and Delftia acidovorans. The treatment with topical ciprofloxacin and fortified gentamicin was effective, and the infection resolved with corneal scar after 5 weeks. Conclusion: Use of cosmetic contact lenses and buying them online is a fairly common practice among teenagers. This can lead to serious eye infection as in this case. To our knowledge, this is the first report of contact lens–related keratitis simultaneously involving these two rare organisms. © 2013 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
