Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
Are you available for chat now?
My screen shows that you have stepped in and out of the chat many times.
Shall we continue with the chat session?
I am sorry. This is my first time here and I am not sure what to do.
Could you specify since how many weeks/months have you had the fleshy growths?
My eye was bothering me this morning and I first noticed it.
Are the fleshy growths seen between the inner corner of the eye and the colored part of the eye? Is it seen in both eyes?
Not quite in the inner corner. Up more to the middle and yes in both eyes.
Does the fleshy growth appear similar to this image-
No they are larger
But it does seem to be like pterygium. It is a kind of degeneration of the white part of the eye called conjunctiva.
And what do I do about it?
Pterygium is not exactly a serious condition but if left alone for years it can have a tendency to grow over the cornea, which then becomes a problem. So it is better to get it surgically removed if they are large .
ok. Thank you. Will eye drops help?
So should i be examined by my eye-doctor?
Eye drops such as over the counter lubricating drops -preservative free refresh tears, 1 drop 4 times a day will help to give soothening effect.
But only surgery can help you to get rid of the fleshy growths.
Alright. Thank you.
