Pterygium - What it is

A pterygium is a fleshy, triangular or wing-shaped growth of the conjunctiva of the eye. It usually occurs on the inner corner of the eye but can also appear on the outer corner. It is a slow-growing, benign lesion, and is usually harmless. However, in rare cases, a pterygium may sometimes grow over the central cornea and affect vision.
