Auto-Avulsion and Resolution of Corneal Pterygium
Optometry and Vision Science
Purpose. Corneal pterygium is a frequently encountered ocular condition in clinical practice. The lesion presents as a fibrous, winged-like growth that typically manifests on the nasal aspect of the conjunctiva and cornea. Pterygia can be surgically removed by excision when they cause significant discomfort, visual impairment, or poor cosmesis. However, the recurrence rate after excision remains high without adjunctive therapy.
