KUMS / services / Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium is the appendages of the eye on the cornea of the eye, which have blood vessels, and if they are enlarged, they can lead to obstruction of the visual pathway and, in rare cases, damage to the cornea and blindness. The pterygium, which is similar to pingocula, does not disappear by itself and it is necessary to use surgery to fix it. Pterygium surgery is a safe operation that can remove pterygium and eliminate the problems caused by it. Pterygium surgery is usually done with local anesthesia (not general anesthesia) and the person is awake during the surgery. During the surgery, sedatives are also used so that the person experiences the least amount of discomfort during the surgery. Therefore, pterygium surgery will be a painless surgical procedure.
