Abstract

Purpose: To report a new surgical technique for excising pediatric corneal limbal dermoid and the post-resection ocular surface reconstruction. Methods: We describe a method of deep lamellar excision followed by sutureless multilayered amniotic membrane transplantation in surgical management of corneal limbal dermoid. Result: This technique achieves a rapid corneal re-epithelization, reduces post-operative pain, and will diminish post-operative scarring. Preoperative corneal astigmatism will persist. Conclusion: This method offers an alternative surgical approach in comparison to simple excision in removal of simple pediatric corneal limbal dermoids.
