Discussion of treatments for Pterygium:
Because a pterygium is visible, many people want to
have it removed for cosmetic reasons. It is usually not too
noticeable unless it becomes red and swollen from dust or air
pollutants. Surgery to remove a pterygium is not recommended
unless it affects vision. If a pterygium is surgically removed, it
may grow back, particularly if the patient is less than 40 years
of age. Lubricants can reduce the redness and provide relief from
the chronic irritation.
