Purpose: To describe the technique of split-conjunctival grafts (SCG) for double-head pterygia and to evaluate its postoperative outcome. Method: A retrospective analysis of seven eyes with primary double-head pterygium was done. All eyes received pterygium excision with split-conjunctival grafts harvested from the superior quadrant. All patients were followed up for recurrence of the lesion and incidence of complications. Results: No recurrence was noted with a mean follow-up of 17.7 ± 6 months. Conclusion: Split-conjunctival graft is a useful procedure for double-head pterygium.
