Technique for Amniotic Membrane Insertion

In this video, Nicholas Colatrella, OD, of PineCone Vision Center in Sartell, Minnesota, demonstrates the proper technique for inserting a sutureless amniotic membrane, in this case, the Prokera Classic (Bio-Tissue). In this patient, the amniotic membrane was used to help manage a recurring corneal erosion, although they may be beneficial in any setting where the goal is reepithelialization and suppression of inflammation.
