Services • EYE CARE


Pterygium is a non-cancerous growth of tissue that develops on the conjunctiva, the clear membrane covering the white part of the eye. It usually starts from the inner corner of the eye and extends towards the cornea. Pterygium is commonly caused by exposure to UV radiation, dry and dusty environments, and chronic eye irritation.


Symptoms can include redness, irritation, and a feeling of a foreign body in the eye. In some cases, pterygium can affect vision if it grows over the cornea.


Treatment options range from lubricating eye drops and sunglasses for mild cases to surgical removal for more severe or symptomatic pterygium. Regular eye examinations are recommended to monitor its growth.
