May be covered: If the pterygium is causing vision issues or chronic, constant irritation, it may be covered by medical insurance. The cost if it is not covered will depend on where the surgery is done (less expensive at an outpatient surgery center than a hospital), and what approach is used. Ask your surgeon!

Depends: This surgery is commonly done in an or with associated fees. But some doctors can do it in their offices for a lesser fee. Discuss ahead of time - there is no set fee and these things are always negotiable provided you raise the issue - especially if you are paying cash and not being covered by insurance.
