Questions?

How are pterygia treated?
When this tissue becomes inflamed and irritated, ointments or eye drops can be used to help combat the inflammation. If it grows large enough to obstruct vision, it can also be surgically removed.

Surgery is often a temporary solution, as the pterygium can come back. Recurrence is especially prevalent in younger individuals. Radiation and specially formulated medications can help reduce the chances of reoccurrence.

How are pinguecula treated?
Unless inflammation occurs, no treatment is necessary. A pinguecula won’t affect vision or grow into the cornea. In rare instances, they can be removed with surgery, but the scar left behind can be just as noticeable as the pinguecula itself.
