          Abstract

          A retrospective study of 93 patients who underwent pterygium excision revealed a low prevalence of myopia in comparison with normal population. These results support the theory that solar ultraviolet radiation is a contributory factor in the formation in pterygium and some protection against this radiation is afforded by continuously worn myopic correction.
