Toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) are part of a spectrum of blistering diseases after hypersensitivity reaction to drugs, with ocular involvement in 69%–84% cases. The role of amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) has been well established in the patients of SJS in reducing chronic long-term morbidity and sequelae. Herein, we present a report of 2 cases where bedside sutureless AMT was done within the first 5 days of onset. Amniotic membrane was secured in a symblepharon ring made using Ryle's tube. Both the cases had favorable outcomes and show the role of bedside and urgent AMT in these eyes.
