Abstract: 

Purpose: To determine the effect of preserved human amniotic membrane transplant in patients with persistent corneal epithelial defects.
Methods: Glycerin preserved amniotic membrane used for 10 eyes of 10 patients with corneal epithelial defect and associated sterile ulceration due to different causes. Epithelial defects had persisted for a mean of 5.3 weeks (range 3-8 weeks).
Results: In 7 eyes (70%), total epithelial healing occurred within a mean period of 14 days (range 11-21 days) with no recurrence after a mean follow up of 6 weeks (range 3-8 weeks). One eye had partial healing within 7 days but had been lost to follow up. Two eyes (20%) failed to heal after a follow up of 3 weeks.
Conclusion: Amniotic membrane transplantation may be considered as a useful alternative method for treatment of persistent corneal epithelial defects associated with sterile ulceration which is refractory to conventional treatment.
