In brief: Pinguecula surgery

Pinguecula is a very common, abnormal growth of clear covering (conjunctiva) of eye's white part (sclera); not on cornea (window of the eye) which is a pterygium.
Surgery usually takes 15-30min: a conjunctival autograft & sometime amniotic membrane is used to prevent recurrence. Pain is minimal for 3-5d depening on extent. Complications very rare: more info: eyedoc2020@blogspot.com
