Pinguecula

If the eye surface is irritated by UV exposure or dryness over several years, it can become slightly thickened. Such areas are generally observed at the 3:00 and 9:00 position, where the eyelids meet during blinking. Most often, if these small “bumps” become red or irritated, they are treated with lubricants or anti-inflammatory drops. In severe cases, they can be surgically removed.
