M.D., Ph.D. Author Information From the Department of Ophthalmology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands Cornea: January 1993 - Volume 12 - Issue 1 - p 8-9 Buy Abstract Chemical burning of the external eye by a strong acid or alkali often results in symblepharon formation despite conventional therapy. We report a case with application of a Megasoft Bandage Lens to prevent symblepharon reformation after surgical correction. Complete epithelial healing was established after 3 months, when the lens could be removed. No complications were found with this lens. No symblepharon reformation occurred 26 months after the surgical reconstruction. Copyright © 1993 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
