Abstract

Recently, the use of the human amniotic membrane (hAM) has been extended to treat retinal disorders such as refractory macular holes, retinal breaks and dry and wet age-related macular degeneration. Not only the hAM has proved to be an excellent tool for repairing retinal tissue, but it has also shown a promising regeneration potential. This review aims to highlight the novel use of the hAM in treating retinal diseases. Although the hAM has been used in the ocular anterior segment reconstruction for more than 60 years, in the last 2 years, we have found in literature articles showing the use of the hAM in the retinal surgery field with interesting results in terms of tissue healing and photoreceptor regeneration.
