Pterygium

A pterygium is a wedge-shaped fibrovascular growth of conjunctiva (the surface tissue of the white of the eye) that extends abnormally onto the cornea (the clear central part). It is associated with and thought to be caused by ultraviolet-light exposure, dry eye, and dust. Pterygiums are surgically removed under local anesthesia when their progression is rapid or when they threaten to reach the pupil.
