Two patients with severe ocular surface damage in both eyes are presented. In the patient with limbal stem cell deficiency, allogeneic limbal stem cell transplantation was performed. In the other patient with recurrent pterygium and symblepharon, autogenic oral mucosa transplantation was performed to manage the symblepharon. In this study, we discuss the methods that can be performed for reconstruction in patients with ocular surface disorder in both eyes.
