As a sales professional and someone who makes their living interacting with the public, I often had people comment my eyes appeared to be red and tired looking. Finally, I reached a point where it was time to address my problem! After doing some research, I concluded there was an “old way” of performing pterygium surgery, and a “newer, more advanced method” using the Amniograft. I decided to go for it. Two years later, I could not be happier! The recovery time and healing process was completely uneventful, and my eyes look great!
