Treatment Of Flesh Growing Around The Eyes Without Surgery?
ass. I want to ask whether the flesh that grows around the eye can be dangerous, it grows in one eye.. And the growth is not in front of the cornea but above the cornea and under the inner cornea, can it be cured without surgery?
Thank you for the question. Complaints of flesh growing on the eye can be caused by:
pinguecula, which is an abnormal growth of a yellowish white lump on the conjunctiva (white part of the eye). This lump can be a collection of fat, protein, or calcium pterygium, which is a growth of tissue (scar tissue and blood vessels) under the conjunctiva of the eye toward the cornea of the eye. This growth can start from the pinguecula which then grows to cover the cornea. The exact cause of these two conditions is not known but it is thought that sun exposure, air exposure, and dry eyes can increase the risk of developing this condition. In addition to tissue growth, patients may also experience complaints of red eyes, itchy, dry, or sore eyes, and blurred vision. Surgery to remove this tissue growth will be recommended by a doctor if it interferes with vision or causes discomfort in the eye. But if this tissue growth does not cover the cornea, usually the doctor will provide treatment to reduce symptoms.
Please consult an ophthalmologist for further examination. The doctor will suggest the most appropriate examination for your condition. For the time being, avoid sun exposure. You can use artificial eye drops if your eyes feel dry. Avoid using other eye drops without a doctor's advice.
I hope this information is useful for you.
