Abstract

Amniotic membrane grafts are used extensively for ocular surface reconstruction. We describe the case of a 66-year-old man with traumatic, restrictive strabismus. Amniotic membrane was applied to resolve symblepharon between the globe and lids and also to prevent re-formation of adhesions between extraocular muscles and adjacent titanium plates placed during prior surgery.
