Pterygium in Bensalem, PA

A pterygium, often referred to as a benign growth, manifests on the conjunctiva, the clear, moist membrane covering the sclera or white part of the eye. This triangular, pinkish protrusion typically forms near the eye's inner corner. Left untreated, it can extend onto the cornea, the eye's front part crucial for light refraction and clear vision. This condition can affect either one or both eyes, and when multiple growths are present, it is called pterygia. Untreated, pterygia can impair vision significantly. At IC Laser Eye Care and Suburban Eye Associates, we specialize in monitoring eye health and recommending optimal pterygium treatments. We invite you to book a consultation for a comprehensive evaluation and tailored treatment strategy.

The specifics of your treatment plan will be tailored to the severity of your condition. For those with a less severe form of the condition, over-the-counter re-wetting drops or artificial tears might be suggested. In cases of moderate severity, a moisturizing solution or corticosteroid eye drops could be prescribed to reduce symptoms, such as redness, itching, and discomfort. For patients facing more severe pterygium, surgical intervention may be necessary to excise the growth, particularly if it leads to vision impairment or cosmetic issues.

Symptoms of pterygium differ widely among patients. Many may not experience any symptoms until a pterygium forms. Once symptoms appear, they can be anywhere from mild to intense. Symptoms of a pterygium may include:

  • A sensation of grit or sand in your eye
  • Watery or teary eyes
  • A small, elevated pink growth on the eye
  • Eye redness and swelling
  • Dryness, burning, or itchiness in the eyes

They are very professional and caring people.

I have been a patient of IC Laser on Knights Rd for the last 5 years and have always left satisfied and happy. I have gotten contacts, prescription glasses and eye check-ups and all of those services have been exceptional. Picking out glasses is not an easy thing because you want your glasses to look right with the shape of your face. Dianna the Optician is super nice, very knowledgeable and patient with me every time I visit. She has even made my 6 year old nephew feel confident and cool in his first pair of glasses! I definitely recommend checking this place out for all your vision needs.
