Large avascular blebs need to be repaired especially if they are associated with leaks or have had episodes of bleb-related infections. We describe a new technique of using an amniotic membrane graft, that is inserted into the bleb through a small incision, helping to reduce the size of the avascularity, providing support to the bleb, and preventing extraneous infections.
