I read with great interest the case report by Lau et al1 on subconjunctival infection caused by Macacanema formosana in a recent issue of the ARCHIVES. I would like to report a similar case that I saw recently.

A 52-year-old woman from southern India sought treatment at our outpatient department for irritation and redness in the right eye of 2 to 3 days' duration. She had no history of travel or contact with pets.
