SEE OPHTALMOLOGIST: This is most likely a pterigion. These are caused by uv exposure. I recommend you see an ophtalmologist to have this removed. They can get large and cause problems. Good luck

Pings ulna: The most common diagnosis for that area is a pingecula, related to uv exposure. But of course there are many other possibilities.
