Natural Remedies for Pterygium

A Pterygium is a fleshy growth on the eyeball. While initially pterygia are usually asymptomatic, they can cause irritating symptoms like burning, itching and tearing of the eye.  Often treatment for pterygia is sought because it is a cosmetic issue. Eventually pterygia can adversely affect vision. Sometimes surgery is performed to remove a pterygium. Natural remedies like castor oil and apple cider vinegar not only reduce the irritation of pterygia, they often are used to heal the pterygia in part or whole.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Raw and organic apple cider vinegar is used to reduce the redness and itching of a pterygia. Apple cider vinegar is diluted with distilled water and used directly in the eye. For complete directions, cautions and side effects, please see this page.
