Moraxella keratitis has been commonly described as a disease of debilitated older patients, particularly malnourished chronic alcoholics. This communication reviews the features of corneal infection due to Moraxella nonliquifaciens occurring in both young and old patients in otherwise good general health. Chronic corneal epithelial disturbance was a common finding in the 8 patients reported, indicating that more localised corneal debilitation may have a role in the pathogenesis of this disease.
