A 28 year-old male motorbiker skidded off the main road and collided against a tree. He was fully conscious but the upper eyelids and the lower forehead skin was stripped off. However, the vision in both eyes were normal. The wound was successfully repaired except for the middle part of the left anterior lamella which was lost.
