Preparing for Pterygium Surgery


 

The Assessment

During your initial consultation, your eyes will be thoroughly examined by Dr. Vu to see if you are suitable for Pterygium Surgery. Prior to surgery, preoperative tests and a comprehensive health eye exam are performed to screen for glaucoma, cataracts, and other medical conditions. Possible risks and complications will also be discussed with the doctor. Once you have decided to undergo pterygium surgery, your procedure will be scheduled, and you will be advised of your preoperative instructions. Plan to arrange transportation to and from our office for the day of surgery and for the day after surgery. You will also need to begin your antibiotic eye drops one day before surgery.

Day of Surgery

  1. You can eat and drink as usual, except for coffee or alcohol
  2. Do NOT wear makeup or lotion on your face
  3. Plan to shower no earlier than 24 hours after surgery

The Treatment

Surgery is performed in the office under local anesthesia. This means that you will be awake but we will numb your eyes so that you do not feel anything in your eye(s) during surgery. The procedure takes about 20 minutes per pterygium.

PROCEDURE

  1. The pterygium and all thickened areas are removed.
  2. An unaffected piece of you own white tissue will be removed and grafted into the area where the pterygium was removed.
  3. Sutures are used to hold the graft in place.
  4. A clear bandage contact lens will be placed in the eye for protection, but your eye will not be patched after surgery.
