Pterygium: It is hard to tell you about it if you don't tell me more about it. A pterygium is a thin, wing-like growth from the edge of the conjunctiva onto the cornea. Many people get them, especially in sunny places. Eye mds (ophthalmologists) usually don't remove them until they cause bothersome symptoms, astigmatic vision changes, or begin to encroach on the pupil because they can recurr agressively.
