Radiation

Despite proper surgical removal, the pterygium may return, particularly in young people. Conjunctival graft to the site is used to decrease recurrence. Surface radiation or medications are sometimes also used to help prevent recurrences. Protecting the eyes from excessive ultraviolet light with proper sunglasses and avoiding dry, dusty conditions may also help.
