Cornea Surgery FAQ
Superficial keratectomy – gentle removal of diseased skin from the cornea so that new healthy skin (epithelium) can grow in its place. It is indicated for improvement of blurry vision and/or pain in patients with corneal conditions such as Salzmann nodular degeneration, anterior basement membrane dystrophy (ABMD), recurrent corneal erosion, band keratopathy and other conditions of the cornea.
Pterygiectomy -removal of the pterygium followed by the placement of a small graft of healthy eye skin (conjunctiva) onto that area from another part of the eye, which helps things heal well and lowers the chance that the pterygium will grow back.
