If you notice a raised white/pink tissue on the white of your eye, this may be a pterygium. These are typically non-cancerous, but they can grow in size, causing discomfort and disruption in your vision.
- Blurred vision
- Feeling of something foreign in the eye
Treatment for Pterygium
Medicated or lubricating eye drops can help ease irritation caused by pterygium. If the lesion begins to threaten your sight or makes you feel self-conscious, pterygium surgery to remove the growth may be recommended.
