Answer

Thanks for your Question

Unfortunately there is no cure for pterygium other than surgical removal. There are certain steps should be taken by your eye surgeon to reduce recurrence rates of pterygium. Surgical removal of Pterygium without conjunctival graft, amniotic graft or anti-metabolites has high recurrence rate.

Corneal scar that is caused by pterygium can be treated with Anti-metabolites such as Mitomycin and sometimes lamellar keratoplasty is required to improve vision.

You should discuss these options with your eye doctor.
