Pterygium

 

What is Pterygium?

 
 

Symptoms

Known as “surfer’s eye,” a pterygium is a pinkish, triangular tissue growth on the surface of the eye. Pterygia are very common in Hawaii as they are related to long term ultraviolet light exposure. Once they start, they do not go away. The goal is to prevent further growth. However when they become irritating or affect vision, surgical options are available.
