Pterygium Surgery (Surfer’s Eye)

The pterygium is a mass of tissue which starts from the conjunctiva and grows over the cornea, from its side to the centre. In “St. Nikolay Chudotvorets” Medical Eye Centre pterygium surgery is performed by removal of the growth, followed by a transplant, in order to prevent reappearance of the pterygium. The duration of the procedure depends on the complexity of the pterygium.
