Primary Pterygium

Primary pterygium is so designated in cases that have not had previous pterygium surgeries. Approaching each pterygium in a custom designed surgical fashion Dr. Gulani further classifies pterygiums into:

  1. Mild
  2. Medium
  3. Large

Additionally, he further classifies the pterygia based on their location:

  1. Unilateral
    a. Medial: toward the nose
    b. Lateral: towards outer part of the eye
    c. Superior or Inferior: less common locations
  2. Bi-temporal: on each side of the eye
  3. Circumferential
