In brief: Surgery

The only treatment that works for pterygium is surgical removal.
Eye drops do not help, nor does wearing sunglasses.

In brief: Pteryium

Prevention is key remedy.
Avoid sun (sunglasses, hat); avoid smoking. Natural rx info: see eyedoc2020.blogspot.com; Other ways to help decrease symptoms: cold artificial tears, nsaid drops, low dose or hi dose steroids (though risk of glaucoma, cataract); surgery is only real way to remove/cure: though 5-15% risk of recurrence. Best of luck.

In brief: Surgery

The best and fastest treatment for pterygium is excision with conjunctival autograft utilizing fibrin glue.
If properly done, recurrence rate is less than 3-5% and the surgery takes only a matter of minutes.
