  Do the quiz: Which eye has had surgery?

Professor Lawrence Hirst has been conducting clinical research into pterygium for the past 25 years and has contributed more to the peer-reviewed scientific literature on this subject than any other single Australian or overseas researcher.

P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for PTERYGIUM®  was been pioneered by Professor Lawrence Hirst over the past 15 years and has now been used in over 2500 patients. It is the end result of careful and painstaking changes to existing surgical techniques.

Professor Lawrence Hirst has used this method exclusively for the last 12 years and it has resulted in the best results reported in the world’s scientific literature.

A recurrence of the removed pterygium is extremely rare using P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for PTERYGIUM® and equally importantly, the cosmetic appearance as a result of this procedure is superb. In fact, a year after the surgery, most people looking at a patient cannot tell which eye has had the surgery!

P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for PTERYGIUM® is a surgery that can be recommended for patients in whom the pterygium is causing problems as well as those who are concerned about its appearance.

Now, PARTNERS in  P.E.R.F.E.C.T. for PTERYGIUM® makes this technique available in other geographic areas by accredited practitioners. The first PARTNER is Dr Katherine Smallcombe who has completed a Fellowship with Professor Hirst.
