Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium surgery is performed to remove a

pterygium

, a benign growth of the conjunctiva. It may affect one or both eyes, and can be caused by overexposure to bright sunlight. A pterygium usually appears as a painless area of raised white tissue, which may become inflamed and cause burning and irritation. No treatment is needed unless the pterygium starts to affect vision or causes discomfort. In these cases it is removed with surgery by an

Ophthalmologist

.
