Will closing my eyes while outside prevent pinguecula to grow?

In brief: Possibly

Pinguecula are responses to environmental dist, wind and light.
Closing the eyes might limit this exposure, but can you function with your eyes closed? Sunglasses might help a little but pinguecula are in any case not functionally a problem.
