Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Physically, the minus eye (nearsightedness) is no different from a normal eye. Minus the eye can only be known through visual impairments experienced, confirmed by a sharp examination of vision by a doctor.
The yellowish translucent membrane in the white part of your eye is probably caused by pterygium. This condition occurs due to exposure to dry air, wind, or excessive UV light in the eye which triggers excessive conjunctival growth forming membranes. The membrane due to pterygium often appears from the inner corner of the eye, then widens to form a triangle towards the center of the eye. This condition is often harmless. However, if it expands larger, this membrane can cover the field of view, so that you will experience vision problems. Even when inflamed, these membranes can cause itching, tenderness, lumps, redness, watering, and many other complaints.
Various other conditions, such as pinguecula, pseudopterigium, conjunctivitis, benign or malignant tumors in the eye, and so on can also cause a membrane-like mass as you experience today. To be clear, you should check yourself directly to the nearest doctor or ophthalmologist.
At this time, you should not gouge or carelessly handle the emergent membranes. Protect your eyes from being exposed to excessive dry air, wind, and UV rays, for example by using anti-radiation protective goggles during activities.
Hope this helps ...
