anyone who can refer a good pterygium surgery doctor that does the glue proceedure and gets the job done right. I had this surgery done in 2010 and i need it again in the same right eye, I just want less complication and the problem solve once and for all. Also at a reasonable cost.
Thanks you,Shawn

Anon,

Is the pterygium interfering with your field of vision?

Have you had a consultation yet?

Do you know at what facility you would have the surgery?

Fees would change based on the specific problem that you have and the extent of the surgery necessary to correct it. Your opthalmologist would perform a comprehensive eye exam and could communicate with the insurance company before surgery to determine whether it would be considered cosmetic or medically necessary.

It's possible that some who have had the surgery will read this and let us know what it cost them.

I paid about $1500 for the non stitch with amniotic graft. However the doctor did not remove the pterygium and my right eye ended up worse than before the surgery.
I had the pterygium in the other eye too. I also paid about $1500 and this time it was successful but I used a different eye doctor.
I had a second surgery on my right eye, the doctor removed half of the pterygium and looks like I need another surgery.
All the surgerys were done with the protein glue, so no stitches needed.
