    Evaluation of Conjunctival Graft Thickness after Pterygium Surgery by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography
    Background: To evaluate changes in thickness of the conjunctival graft after pterygium surgery by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Materials and Methods: Eleven eyes of 11 patients with primary nasal pterygium underwent excision followed by free conjunctival autograft. Imaging with AS-OCT was performed at 1 week, 1 month and 3 months after surgery to measure thickness of the conjunctival graft at 1, 2 and 3 mm posterior to the scleral spur. As the control, thickness of the normal bulbar conjunctival epithelium in the temporal area was also measured at the same locations. Results: Average thickness of the graft decreased ...
