A pterygium is an abnormal growth of elastolytic (sun exposed) cells that begin to encroach and scar the cornea. Pterygium surgery involves removal of the abnormal tissue from the sclera and cornea of the eye. Today’s techniques in the hands of an experienced surgeon offer a significantly higher success rate than conventional surgery. Our surgeons at Dulles Eye Associates perform NO-STITCH PTERYGIUM SURGERY WITH AN AUTOGRAFT, the latest technology in pterygium surgery. Under light sedation and local anesthesia, the abnormal corneal tissue is removed and replaced with a thin graft of normal tissue. Over the next 2-3 weeks, the eye gradually returns to a normal appearance. No stitches mean quicker healing and less discomfort.

I had Lasik done on both eyes and the experience was great. I was legally blind in both eyes (corrected with contacts) and today I don’t need wear glasses to see at all. It really is amazing.
The procedure is explained in detail from start to finish.

I’m going to post here for Dr. Nasrullah. He is a fantastic Lasik surgeon. Even better, he really cares about his patients. He explained the surgery to me, answered all my questions. He re-checked my prescription before the surgery just to make sure they knew where I stood.
