Topical dobesilate eye drops for ophthalmic primary pterygium


, : Topical dobesilate eye drops for ophthalmic primary pterygium. Bmj Case Reports 2012: -

Selective inhibition of fibroblast growth factor and vascular endothelial growth factor signalling pathways is effective in causing regression of pterygia. Prompt regression of fibrovascular mass and conjunctival angiogenesis was documented 2 weeks after topical administration of dobesilate eye drops twice daily. At 3-month follow-up, no recurrence was seen and no ocular irritation and burning were noted. The authors believe that this is the first known successful use of topical dobesilate in primary pterygium.
