Burn trauma is one of the most severe damages of the eyes. The results of treatment depend both on the initial damage degree and the chosen way of treatment and immediacy of its carrying out. The conservative therapy is considered to be insufficient at present. Underestimation of the condition of the burnt eye and inopportune treatment lead to unsatisfactory functional and anatomic results. Therefore, tactics of early surgical treatment of heavy burns of eyes is rather actual. Amniotic membrane transplantation as early surgical intervention may presume to lower the risk of burn traumas of eyes complications, to improve the results of treatment and to raise the quality of patients life.

Keywords: ocular burn, amniotic membrane, keratoplastic, transplantation.
