Pterygium: Read about it on the internet. The can be removed by an eye surgeon (ophthalmologist) if they become symptomatic, change vision, grow extensively or toward the pupil. They should have a graft place when removed to decrease the risk of recurrence. It is not a difficult procedure by experiene and training are important because there are some risks. After removal, expect to be sore a few days.
