Amniotic Membranes in Optometry

by Andrew S. Morgenstern, OD, Walt Whitley, OD, MBA

How are amniotic membranes changing the way that optometrists provide care for patients? Walt Whitley, OD, MBA, outlines the wound-healing properties of amniotic membrane and says that this tissue can benefit patients with a number of ocular conditions. Andy Morgenstern, OD, insists that, while amniotic membrane is a great tool to have, there is not much peer-reviewed research on the topic, and physicians should be sure to manage patients’ expectations.
