How to treat tiny white nodule on the conjunctiva lining of cornea?

Dear Dr.
Tiny white nodule on the conjunctiva lining with cornea (seems like Pinguecula/pterygium) on my left eye and I went to eye hospital for treatment and I was told that NO treatment is needed. I feel nothing on it but want to remove it completely as soon as possible. I found some clinic for surgery but those are done not by laser. I prefer done by laser surgery only.
Others say those can be treat with Zinc Met 30c. Is it true?

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having a small nodule like growth on the conjunctiva probably indicating degeneration of conjunctiva like pterygium or pinguecula.
Pterygium or pinguecula won't require treatment if that are not symptomatic.
However if you want you can get it removed by simple surgical excision. However there is no laser surgery for this, hence if you want you can undergo surgical excision for removal of this growth.

Thank you
