I think you are mentioning about ' Pterygium
' which is a non cancerous fleshy growth over the conjunctiva
later progressing on to the superficial layers of Cornea.
I know it is common to cause a discomfort,irritation and redness
. But you can manage it conservatively (unless it grows over the cornea and causes significant astigmatism
) by using
- a good lubricant eyedrops every half an hourly during computer usage
- along with a mild steroid
eye drops temporarily to reduce associated inflammation.
- avoid heat exposure and very sunny areas.
If the growth is over the cornea causing astigmatic power of significance or cosmetically causing inconvenience , then your ophthalmologist will examine you and let you know the right time for surgical removal.
So,use lubricant eyedrops to soothen your eyes till then and have a yearly follow up to know its progression. Take care.
