I have pterygium in eye. My eye doctor said it is too thin to do the surgery removal. The appearance really bothers me. Is it safe to wear color contacts to cover it up? I have perfect vision and do not wear glasses.
I have pterygium also and have found out from extensive research that Professor Lawrence Hirst of Australia has the best method of pterygium removal, he has done a little under 1000 surgeries with only one recurrence. Google him to see his research paper on (Pterygium Extended Removal Followed by Extended Conjunctival Transplant) P.E.R.F.E.C.T
I am scheduled to have ptergium removed in my left eye next week w/Dr Hovanesian (Harvard Eye) I have red some terrible things gone wrong on this website...like double vision, droopy eyelid, blurriness. Now i am having 2nd thoughts.This condition has diminished the quality of my life drastically. It's awful & painful. I have red some great stories on other websites ...success stories also. My question is this..How common are complications?.......Thanks!
