Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pterygium is often seen as a thin reddish-white membrane that extends from the inner corner of the eye towards the middle of the eye. This pterygium arises due to excessive conjunctival growth which can be triggered by exposure to dry air, wind, or also exposure to excessive ultraviolet light. In calm conditions, pterygium often does not cause complaints, other than in the form of a lump in the eye. However, if inflamed, pterygium can make the eyes become red, itchy, sore, runny, and excessive secretions. Not only that, pterygium that grows bigger can also cover the field of view so that the vision becomes blurry and blocked.
If your pterygium growth is large enough, you should consult with an eye specialist. In these conditions, so far no other treatment can be done besides surgery. Several types of drugs can help reduce inflammation due to pterygium, but do not cure it. As long as it is performed by competent medical personnel, pterygium surgery is often not dangerous. Therefore, you do not need to worry about living it.
In order for your pterygium not to enlarge, you should do the following steps:
Protect your eyes from direct exposure to dry air, wind, or excessive exposure to ultraviolet light
Use anti-UV sunglasses, especially when outdoors activities during the day
Do not carelessly use eye drops or ointments
Do not rub your eyes excessively
When the eyes feel sore and itchy, you can first drop artificial tears
Hope this helps ...
