Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium is a fairly common eye condition, which causes a growth of tissue to form over the eye. As the tissue continues to grow, the cornea becomes blocked and light is unable to enter the eye. Once this begins to occur, vision can quickly become significantly affected.

Receiving Pterygium Surgery in San Antonio, Texas

In the past, pterygium surgery would involve removing the excess tissue and leaving that area of the eye unprotected, requiring the eye to gradually self-heal. This led to a long recovery time, and a very high rate of reoccurrence.

Now, pterygium surgery is a much more effective and efficient procedure. Instead of leaving the eye unprotected, donor tissues are used in order to keep the eye safe, and the patient more comfortable. Most people experience a very quick and comfortable recovery, and are back to work in just a couple of days.
