It is likely your husband has an inflamed pinguecula.
what causes this and what does he do to get it taken care of
A pinguecula is a scar tissue on the surface of the eye. usually it is barely noticeable. It forms in response to dryness and UV sun exposure.
It takes months to years to form, however.
It is more noticeable now because it is inflamed, thus causing it to increase in size.
Your husband should use artificial tears to lubricate the eyes.
He should also see an ophthalmologist for evaluation
A steroid eye drop can be prescribe which should calm the inflammation.
will this effect his eye site more in the future or cause a more serious problem in the future
it can if it grows onto the cornea. if that is the case, surgery can be considered to remove it.
he will go see the ophthalmologist and have his current prescription updated and have the problem evaluated will this effect his prescription or no because it is not on the cornea area
because it is irritated, it would temporarily affect his prescription. his ophthalmologist may want to treated the pingueculitis first then have him return later to update his glasses prescription.
