Conjunctival nevi are the most common melanocytic tumors of the eye. The benign conjunctival nevus typically harbors conjunctival inclusion cysts that are detectable both clinically and histopathologically, which differentiates it from the other pigmented conjunctival lesions. They commonly affect teenagers and young adults. In our case, we have performed excision of the nevus with amniotic membrane grafting in which we have procured and processed the amniotic membrane ourselves.
