The Membrane On The Surface Of The Eyeball Is Accompanied By A Feeling Of Lump?
Morning, I have a question. In my eyes, the periphery of the eyeball looks like there is a membrane, but it’s only thin. sometimes my eyes like to redden but i don’t feel pain at all. it’s just that my eyes like to redden and sometimes it feels like something is stuck. guess why yes, I’m worried. I have not dared to go to the eye doctor because I am afraid. please explain. I don’t think there is a cure, thank you..
The presence of a membrane on the surface of the eyeball accompanied by a feeling of lump leads to a disorder of the eye called pterygium. The cause of this disease is not clearly known, exposure of the eyes to sunlight, dust, wind, smoke will increase a person's risk of developing pterygium.
This membrane in the eye is not always symptomatic, if it is larger, it can cause:
the eyes experience irritation of the red eyes and itching sensation in the eye if it blocks the pupil, visual disturbances can occur. The doctor will ask you to undergo a vision examination if deemed necessary.
Treatment is in the form of eye drops containing steroids and eye drops for lubricants. If treatment does not respond and the disturbance has the potential to impair vision, the doctor will consider surgery.
Meanwhile, avoid eye exposure to smoke, wind, dust and sunlight (you can use protective glasses).
