A pterygium is an abnormal growth from the conjunctiva onto the cornea. The growth is slightly elevated and can cause irritation and redness. Sometimes, the growth can be extensive and cause distortion or loss of vision. Surgery is the only way to remove a pterygium. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and healing may take several weeks.
