If you’re in the NYC or Long Island areas and you’re seeking diagnosis or treatment for pterygium, Dr. Kelly can help. We invite those suffering from the symptoms of this condition to contact us for a consultation.
Pterygium Treatment Options
If you experience any of the symptoms of a pterygium, or if you have frequent exposure to sun and wind, be sure to contact Kelly Vision Center immediately. If left unattended, this growth can lead to severe scarring on your cornea, which can ultimately cause vision loss. In mild cases, a lubricant or eyedrops will be prescribed to reduce swelling, redness, and other symptoms. If the pterygium is large and causing painful symptoms, surgical removal may be necessary to keep it from affecting your sight. Dr. Kelly and his staff perform highly effective pterygium treatments, which can have excellent functional and cosmetic results.
