Mnemonic: Organisms penetrating an intact Cornea

The organisms affecting the cornea(like pneumococcus) usually do so if there is a preexisting injury especially a breach in the basement membrane of the epithelium.
But some do so despite it being intact, by creating a CHNL.

C-Corynebacterium diptheriae
H-Hemophilus influenzae
N-Neisseria gonorrhoea and menigitidis
L-Listeria monocytogenes

CHNL and Channel. See what I did there? :P
You can picture the microbes digging a channel through the cornea.

Adios :)
