Hello it seems you have pterygium. People with pterygium have a growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the white of the eye. The growth usually forms on A pterygium may affect one or both eyes. When it affects both eyes, it is called a bilateral pterygium,the side closest to the nose and grows toward the center Sometimes, a pterygium causes no symptoms other than its appearance. An enlarging pterygium, however, may cause redness and inflammation. A pterygium can progressively grow onto the cornea (the clear, outer layer of the eye). This can distort the shape of the cornea, causing a condition called astigmatism. The result can be blurred vision. Pterygium usually doesn't require treatment if symptoms are mild. If a temporary worsening of the inflamed condition causes redness or irritation, it can be treated with:Lubricating eyedrops or ointments,Occasional use of vasoconstrictor eyedrops, Short course of steroid eyedrops, If the lesion causes persistent discomfort or interferes with vision, it can be surgically removed during an outpatient procedure . consult a ophthalmologist.
