Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are rare blistering diseases of the skin and mucous membranes with ocular involvement. This is a retrospective analysis of patients with SJS and TEN admitted in a medical college hospital from June 2016 to May 2019. Six among 21 patients had ocular involvement. Five patients with mild grade of ocular involvement were managed with conservative treatment. One patient with TEN and bilateral severe grade involvement underwent bedside application of amniotic membrane. Performing this technique can become challenging. Hence, we look forward towards the inventions of easier variations of the technique.
