Abstract

The use of 0.1 mm membrane prevents penetration of cell because of the microstructure. Similar to the "bare sclera" technique, which is used in selected cases in strabismus or pterygium surgery, the inner lid and sclera were epithelialized separately from the remaining conjunctiva. The surgical membrane prevented recurrence of the symblepharon. We think the presented technique is an easy, quick method of preventing recurrence of lid fusion after separation of symblepharons.
