Pterygium

What Is It?

What is a pterygium?

A pterygium is an abnormal growth of the conjunctiva over the cornea. It most often occurs on the nasal side of the eye, but can occur on the outer side or on both.

What causes it?

The main risk factor for developing a pterygium is exposure to the sun and dryness, which is why it usually occurs in the area between the eyelids. People who work outdoors are most frequently affected.

How can it be prevented?

The main preventive measure is to wear sunglasses during prolonged periods of exposure to the sun and the use of lubricating eye drops to prevent dryness.
