Pterygium

:

Often called ‘surfer’s eye’ but commonly affecting anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, a pterygium (pronounced ‘tur-IJ-gee-um’) is a wholly benign, fleshy tissue growth on the surface of the conjunctiva, the clear tissue that lines your eyelids and covers your eyeball.

It typically forms in the corner of the eye closest to your nose and can often extend across the surface of the cornea.

Though they can look a little scary they’re largely harmless, but they can grow across your pupil and cause vision problems – most famously to premier NZ cricketer Ross Taylor. (While flogging 290 against Australia in 2015, he had to take regular breaks to insert eye drops, then had the growth successfully removed.)
