Pterygium Removal in Pomona NY

Pterygium Surgery in Pomona, NY - Choi OphthalmologyPterygium is a growth on the white part of the eye (sclera) that extends on to the clear dome of the front of the eye (cornea).  It is associated with excessive UV exposure.  It is important to note that this is not a cancerous growth.  However, it often grows to the point of inducing symptoms, such as, decrease in vision, eye irritation, tearing, and eye redness.

Treatment consists of surgical removal of the growth once it reaches the point of either visual significance or chronic irritation.  Dr. Tony T. Choi is deftly skilled in the surgical treatment of this disease should surgery be indicated.
