A pterygium is a benign or noncancerous growth of the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white portion of our eye over the cornea. A pterygium is frequently shaped like a wedge and is usually painless and untreated, but it can be removed if it impairs our vision.

Pterygium occurs more frequently in people who live in warm climates and spend a lot of time outdoors in sunny or windy environments, but the exact cause of this condition is unknown. People whose eyes are exposed to certain elements on a regular basis have a higher risk of developing this condition. These elements include:

  • pollen
  • sand
  • smoke
  • wind
