Pterygium is a fleshy mass of thickened conjunctiva that grows over part of the cornea usually from the inner side of the eyeball and can disturb vision. Symptoms can include: inflammation, bloodshot whites of the eye on the side with the pterygium, itching and burning sensation, mild eye pain.
If you have cloudy vision after your cataract surgery, we can use an in-office laser treatment to safely and effectively correct it. This procedure, known as a YAG Laser Capsulotomy, allows light to clearly pass through the pupil into the eye. With this procedure, your vision can be restored in a matter of hours.
