PINGUECULA

This is a picture of a pinguecula. It is a bump that can devcelop on the corner of the eye. It is usually from years of exposure to uv light. It can become red and irritated at times. It tends to dry out as well at times. The patient can use artificial tears as much as needed. If that is not good enough, the doctor can prescribe mild anti-inflammatory drops. In severe cases, the pinguecula can grow and can be excised surgically.
