Can I prevent getting a pterygium?
Yes, by wearing sunglasses and hats with wide brim we protect the eyes from the ultraviolet lights and prevent the growth of pterygium.
There is a risk of recurrence?
Some patients may experience regrowth within the first 12 months after surgery, possibly to continued UV exposure.
Will I feel pain during surgery?
The doctor will use local anesthesia to numb the eye, during surgery you will only feel some pressure.
