This study was performed to evaluate the use of preserved human amniotic membrane to repair corneal ulcers in 5 eyes of experimental dogs. A 0.45 centimetre, in diameter, trephine was used to create a corneal stroma wound which was later covered with human amniotic membrane and the third eyelid flap for 7 days. After one week, each dog had complete corneal epithelization. Corneal vascularization, photophobia and conjunctivitis and were observed in 1, 4 and 5 dogs, respectively. However, all dogs regained their normal vision.
