A pterygium is the growth of abnormal conjunctival cells that grow onto the cornea. They are typically caused by sun and wind exposure and are most often seen in those who grew up in sunny, dry climates. They are most often treated with artificial tears and sunglasses, however if they grow onto the central cornea they can be removed with a minor surgery.
