No more blurred or Itchy eys

Common symptoms of a pterygium includes redness, blurred vision, and eye irritaion. You might also feel a burning sensation or itchiness. In some cases the pterygium growth grows large enough to cover your cornea interfering with your vision!




Often covered by insurance

Pterygium is often covered by insurance but it may also be considered as a self-pay procedure for cosmetic reasons when the growth is smaller. If it is deemed as a cosmetic procedure, we have flexible financing options and discounts so you can get your surgery without breaking the bank. We have partnered with top healthcare financing companies such as CareCredit® and Alphaeon®. You can find more information here.

Boost your confidence

Having a pterygium can not only leave a corneal scar or cause symptoms like redness or blurred vision, but it can also help you feel you about your eyes. No more growth of pink fleshy tissue covering up those beautiful eyes.

30 minutes is all it takes

The surgery for a pterygium typically takes around 30 minutes for one eye. If there is a pterygium present on both eyes, the surgeries will be a few weeks apart to allow for the vision to be restored and healing to take place as well as lower the risks of an infection or complication.

complications are Rare, Minor, And Treatable

As with any surgical procedure, there is the potential for risks and complications. Following a pterygium surgery, it is normal to experience some redness and discomfort. The doctor will go over all the potential risks during your visit.

LASIK surgery can fix these
eye conditions.


Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.


Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry. The degree of your farsightedness influences your focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may be able to clearly see only objects a great distance away, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects that are closer.


Astigmatism is a common eye condition that can cause squinting, headaches, and blurry vision, poor night vision, eye strain, and the inability to focus on fine details. Depending on the nature of the patient's irregular eye curvature, vision may be more blurred in one direction than another. Symptoms of astigmatism may improve or worsen over time.
