Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Pterygium is a possibility and you may consult this site for information. https://www.webmd.com/eye-health/pterygium-surfers-eye#1 Wish you good health!
