A pterygium is an overgrowth of tissue from the white of the eye onto the clear cornea. It occurs due to a number of factors, with the most important being sunlight exposure during the early years of life. It is a common condition among young adults, especially in Queensland. A pterygium may remain stationary, or may continue to grow and extend further across the front of the eye. Such growth can cause redness, inflammation, discomfort and even disturbance to the quality of vision. In extreme circumstances, a pterygium may grow to cross the line of vision.
Some kinds words from past patients
“Dr Juanita Pappalardo is such a caring doctor. Her expertise and professionalism is only surpassed by her amazing warm nature and outstanding results. My mother’s eye sight was all but gone, but now for the first time in years my mother can see 20/20. I will always recommend Dr Pappalardo to others and am so thankful for all she has given back to my mother”
