Corneal transplantation and conjunctival autograft for simple recurrent pterygium

Recipient donor living donor

The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber. Corneal transplantation, also known as corneal grafting, is a surgical method whereby a damaged or diseased cornea, in its entirety (penetrating keratoplasty) or in part (lamellar keratoplasty), is substituted by donated corneal tissue (the graft). The graft is removed from a recently deceased individual with no known diseases or other issues that may affect the acceptance of the donated tissue or the health of the recipient.

Pterygium (Surfer’s Eye) most frequently refers to a benign growth of the conjunctiva. A pterygium commonly grows from the nasal side of the sclera. It is usually present in the palpebral fissure. It is associated with and thought to be caused by ultraviolet-light exposure (e.g., sunlight), low humidity, and dust. Growth has been known to be preceded with scleral trauma around the Palpebral comissure. The predominance of pterygia on the nasal side is possibly a result of the sun’s rays passing laterally through the cornea, where it undergoes refraction and becomes focused on the limbic area. Sunlight passes unobstructed from the lateral side of the eye, focusing on the medial limbus after passing through the cornea. On the contralateral (medial) side, however, the shadow of the nose medially reduces the intensity of sunlight focused on thelateral/temporal limbus.
