A pterygium is a non-cancerous growth of the clear, thin tissue (conjunctiva) that lays over the white part of the eye (sclera). In some cases, a pterygium can extend to the cornea. The cause is unknown, however statistic shows that it is more common in people with excess outdoor exposure to sunlight and wind. Pterygium is common in aging adults but is rare amongst children.
