Petrygium surgery is a procedure to remove the non-cancerous growth on the conjunctiva of the eye. It is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to alleviate the symptoms, such as vision interference. In some cases where petrygium has become inflamed and, is affecting the vision, surgery is considered. Sometimes, a person may develop pinguecula, a small yellowish bump in the white of the eye, as a precursor to petrygium. During the operation, the growth is removed or scraped and replaced with a graft, usually an autograft (conjunctiva autograft or transplantation). Petrygium surgery is considered to be an effective treatment for this benign growth and results in improvement of vision as well as quality of life.
