Abstract:

Watertight closure of perforating corneoscleral lacerations is necessary to prevent epithelial ingrowth, infection, and potential loss of the eye. Complex lacerations can be difficult to treat, and repair with sutures alone is often inadequate. In this study we evaluated a sutureless technology for sealing complex corneal and scleral lacerations that bonds amniotic membrane AM to the wound using only green light and the dye, rose bengal RB.
