[Article in French]


We report our surgical technique of limbal autograft for recent severe ocular burns. Our procedure is a modified Kenyon and Tseng technique. We discuss our main observations when using this procedure for serious ocular burns which demonstrate the physical signs best indicating surgery, the limbal region to be used, and optimal postoperative follow-up.
