A pterygium, from the Greek word for “wing,” is an abnormal growth of tissue that extends from the conjunctiva (a membrane that covers the white of the eye) onto the cornea. Pterygia may be small, or grow large enough to interfere with vision and cause irritation. These growths are commonly located on the inner corner of the eye.

Symptoms :

  • Appearance of a raised pink, white, or red lesion on the eye
  • Redness and irritation of the eye
  • Foreign body sensation
  • Decreased or blurry vision.FOR MORE
