The Eye Center, P.A. Discusses Pterygium Removal Surgery

The Eye Center, P.A., a leading ophthalmology practice in South Carolina, is proud to announce the availability of pterygium removal surgery for its patients. Pterygium is a non-cancerous growth that develops on the surface of the eye and can cause irritation and vision problems if left untreated. The Eye Center, P.A. offers state-of-the-art surgical techniques for pterygium removal to help restore vision and improve patient comfort and satisfaction.

“Pterygiums can be bothersome and even painful if left untreated,” said Matthew T. Clary, MD, an ophthalmologist at The Eye Center, P.A. “At The Eye Center, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible care so they can enjoy clearer vision without any discomfort or irritation from pterygia.”

The Eye Center, P.A.’s experienced team of ophthalmologists use advanced surgical techniques to remove pterygia while preserving as much of the healthy tissue as possible. During surgery, a small incision is made in the eye to remove the growth while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue and structures such as the conjunctiva or cornea. After surgery, patients are typically able to return home within 24 hours with minimal discomfort or pain and no need for stitches or bandages over their eyes.

“We are committed to providing our patients with safe and effective treatments for their eye conditions,” said Dr. R. Brian Huff, MD, another ophthalmologist at The Eye Center, P.A. “Our goal is to help our patients regain clearer vision without any long-term side effects from their pterygium removal surgery.”

The Eye Center also offers comprehensive pre-operative evaluations prior to any procedure so that every patient receives individualized care tailored specifically to their needs and medical history. In addition, they schedule post-operative follow-up appointments where doctors monitor progress, answer questions, address concerns, and provide additional treatment options if necessary.

“We understand how important it is for our patients to have access to quality medical care,” said Dr. Ryan N. Mercer, MD, another ophthalmologist at The Eye Center, P. A. “At The Eye Center, we strive to ensure that every patient receives personalized attention throughout their entire treatment process.”
