Home of P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for PTERYGIUM®


“When I finally achieved my objective with only 1 patient from 2000 surgeries return to me with a recurrence (the return of pterygium after surgery), I knew I had achieved my goal. There is now a new standard, a new benchmark and my patients rest assured the risks of requiring further surgery is a miniscule 1 in 2000. No longer do they have to worry about being the 10th person on the operating table who’ll need further surgery.”
– Professor Lawrence Hirst, 2016

First removal

Below are photos of 11 eyes from over 2000 patients, who selected P.E.R.F.E.C.T for PTERYGIUM® surgery. These patients only required removal one time due to selecting The Australian Pterygium Centre for their surgery.

Below is a sample of patients who selected The Australian Pterygium Centre after the failure of their first, second, third, fourth and even ninth surgeries due to their surgeons NOT practicing P.E.R.F.E.C.T for PTERYGIUM®. When surgeons told them they had a 1 in 10 risk of recurrence, they were right. (Please note, your first go for pterygium removal is your best go. The Australian Pterygium Centre recurrence rate for subsequent removals is 1 in 200. Still a much better result than 1 in 10.)
