Pseudopterygium

A pseudopterygium due to conjunctival scarring differs from a pterygium in that there are adhesions between the scarred conjunctiva and the cornea and sclera.

Treatment consists of lysis of the adhesions, excision of the scarred conjunctival tissue, and coverage of the defect (this may be achieved with a free conjunctival graft harvested from the temporal aspect).
