Dr. Radhakrishna Bishwal*, Dr. Sanghamitra Samantaray and Dr. Swapnil Singhai
Pterygium is characterized by a triangular fibrovascular subepithelial in growth of degenerative bulbar conjunctival tissue over the limbus toward the cornea. Multiple factors are known for this abnormal growth of tissue exposure to dust, wind, living in subtropical and tropical climate and ultra violet radiations are responsible for its growth. The prevalence of pterygium was found to be 10.2% in the world, with highest prevalence in low altitude regions. Patients with pterygium present with various complaints, ranging from no symptoms to significant redness, swelling, itching, irritation, and blurring of vision associated with elevated lesions of the conjunctiva and contiguous cornea in one or both eyes. The diagnosis is based on the clinical appearance of the lesion. Medical treatment (artificial tears and lubricants) does not decrease progression or cause regression of pterygium. The purpose of this case study is to determine the Anjan therapy is an effective and safe treatment option that can enhance the speed and degree of recovery, minimal risk and high patient acceptance in preference to other methods of treatment of pterygium.[Full Text Article]
