4 Scopus citations


A low prevalence of pterygium (2%) was found in 5050 Israeli Jews. As in other studies most of the patients were young and worked indoors. All had nonspecific eye complaints, such as those of the dry eye syndrome. Basal tear secretion was diminished, suggesting a possible endogenous etiological factor.
