Meat growing on the eyes is called pterygium in its medical language. Growth starts from the corner of the eye, can be the outer corner or corner of the eye near the nose. The most often is from the corner of the eye close to the nose. Meat can grow to cover the black part of the eyeball so that obstructing view.
Pterygium results from exposure to dust, sand, smoke, wind and direct sunlight so that the eyes become inflamed. If these conditions occur often, over time, the meat will grow. Patients will experience repeated eye inflammation, which is characterized by red, itchy or sore and watery eyes.
When inflamed, anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesic eye drops are needed to relieve symptoms. After the eyes are calm, lifting can be done. This action is called pterygium excision. The action is carried out on pterygium which is already on the black part of the eyeball or due to aesthetic reasons. The procedure is performed in a special eye surgery room. The action is classified as a small operation in the eye. Patients will only be given local anesthesia so that they remain conscious during the action. After the action is done, the patient will be observed for several hours (the duration depends on the conditions at the time of the action), then can go home immediately. Hospitalization is generally not necessary. Therefore, immediately consult an ophthalmologist in order to get a fast and appropriate treatment.
Meanwhile, to prevent the increasingly severe conditions and to prevent recurring pterygium, you need to take precautions to use glasses when going out of the room during the day and every time riding a motorcycle. You can also use artificial tear drops to avoid dry eyes, which can be a trigger for pterygium.
Thus hopefully useful.
