If the pterygium is too small treatment may be postpone. If the pterygium is causing redness and foreign body sensation than lubricating eye drops give some relief but the proper treatment of pterygium is only surgical. Eye should be operated when 

  • Eye looks cosmetically very bad 

  • if lubricating eye drops dont give any relief. 

  • If the pterygium is so big that it threatens vision

At SINGLA EYE HOSPITAL AND LASER VISION CENTRE,KOTKAPURA, PUNJAB our highly trained eye specialist are equally comfortable doing surgery with glue or sutures. But there is lots of difference between two in terms of patient comfort but long term surgical success is the same. In surgery with glue patient has very less pain, discomfort, watering and post operative swelling and he is able to do most of his works by 2 to 3 days but in surgery with sutures due to severe pain recovery takes upto 10 days. Sutures are removed after 10 days.

Yes! Pterygium can occur if done with older techniques like Bare Sclera Technique which has the failure rate of 50% and sadly is still performed in many centres across the country. Failure rate of conjunctival autograft with stitch or glue is less than 5%. and with God's grace we have not seen a single re-occurrence in our centre in last 8 years.

Yes! Pterygium permanently damages the vision. If it reaches the central visual area of the cornea than even after surgical removal there remains the white scar so vision never fully recovers.
