Pterygium Removal Surgery

Hi Everyone I have my pterygium removal surgery scheduled for next month. I am terrified about being semi awake during the procedure, and the pain that will follow in the days after the surgery. The procedure will be scissorless and sutureless, using a fibrin tissue adhesive instead. I have read some message boards from a few years ago but if anyone has been through this surgery recently and can share their experience or any tips that would be great. The doctor doing the surgery is Dr. Soroudi in Santa Monica, CA. Especially if he has done your surgery and you're willing to share your experience it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Pterygium Removal Surgery

Hi Renatorian. I am also wondering how your surgery went and if you are happy with the surgeon/ results. I also am in So Cal and have already had an appointment with Dr. Hovanesian. I have an appointment with another surgeon in O.C. next week. I am so scared to go through with this but I can't put it off any longer. I will look forward to hearing back from you! Thanks.
