Abstract


The human amniotic membrane has been known to help treat a variety of ocular surface diseases thanks to its different components and properties. 




The amniotic membrane implantation needed the use of sutures or glue in an operating room. Nowadays, the introduction of in-office sutureless amniotic membranes has made it simpler and easier for practicians to use amniotic membranes in their daily practice.




Dehydrated amniotic membrane is a type of in-office sutureless membrane that doesn't need much preparation nor time and with the same efficiency as the other types of amniotic membranes.




We present the case where we used a sutureless dehydrated amniotic membrane to treat difficult corneal opacities on a teenager's eye.
