The Eyes Are Always Red After Pterygium Surgery?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pterygium occurs when the conjunctiva grows excessively to form a membrane that covers the eye, starting from the inner corner of the eye, then spreads to the middle of the eye. When in calm condition, pterygium often does not cause complaints, other than eyes that feel lumpy or aching quickly. However, if inflamed, pterygium can make the eyes become red, sore, itchy, watery, more sensitive to light, and this can clearly be very disturbing sufferers. Pterigium whose size is widening can also cover the field of view so that the view becomes blurry.
Indeed, pterygium surgery cannot be 100% certain that pterygium will heal and may not be repeated. But with this operation, vision problems caused by enlarged pterygium can be overcome so that patients are no longer constrained by vision.
However, if after surgery you still often experience complaints that are quite severe in your eyes, we recommend that you check yourself back to the doctor or ophthalmologist to be given the best solution. It may be that the doctor will give you several types of drugs or may also recommend that surgery be performed again so that your complaints subside. In the meantime, you can live first:
When the eyes get inflamed, first drop artificial tears, rest your eyes from tiring activities (like reading small print, staring at gadgets, driving long distances)
Use glasses to protect your eyes from exposure to dry air
Do not look at direct sunlight, especially during the day (between 9 am to 3 pm), use anti-radiation glasses when outdoors activities
Do not rub your eyes excessively
Do not carelessly use ointments or eye drops without doctor's advice
Don't hold eyes with dirty hands
Hope this helps ...
