Pteryguim? What can I do about it?

Date posted: April 30, 2012   |  

Pterygium is a flesh growth on the white of the eye. If you have noticed a yellowish tint to it, you may have a benign growth possibly caused by prolonged UV exposure. Pterygium can flare with weather changes and allergies, causing great irritation. Schedule an appointment today with one of our skilled ophthalmologists who can ease the redness and inflammation. They may prescribe eye drops or even surgery to remove the growth. Refer to our website for more information. Our Front Desk staff is ready to schedule your appointment at (831) 372-1500.
