Objective: To Study the correlation between length and width of pterygium on induced astigmatism. To determine the relation between preoperative and postoperative astigmatism measured by keratometery and refraction.
Results: Total 60 patients were included with male predominance (75%) and majority of patients falling in middle age group (60%). There was a strong association of pterygium with outdoor workers as compared to indoor workers. The length of pterygium had strong correlation with corneal astigmatism as compared to width. Following excision of pterygium with Conjunctival autograft with suture, there is statically significant reduction in mean corneal and subjective astigmatism. (p value <0.001).
Keywords: Conjunctival Autograft, corneal astigmatism, Pterygium
