Hello. Pterygium (Surfer's Eye) most often refers to a benign growth of the conjunctiva. A pterygium commonly grows from the nasal side of the conjunctiva. It is usually present in the palpebral fissure. It is associated with and thought to be caused by ultraviolet-light exposure (e.g., sunlight), low humidity, and dust. Prevention: As it is associated with excessive sun or wind exposure, wearing protective sunglasses with side shields and/or wide brimmed hats and using artificial tears throughout the day may help prevent their formation or stop further growth. Medication: Can take homoeopathic medicine - Calcarea Fluor. 12x/ thrice daily for 4 weeks, then revert back.

I had a pterygium excision over a month ago in my left eye. Now I see the grafted portion becoming white again gradually. Is it natural or is my pterygium recurring? Is there any way to prevent this recurrence?

Hello 1. Colour changing to white indicates that there is no recurrence 2. In recurrence, its size wil start increasing and colour will change to red 3. You can not do anything to prevent recurrence.

Pterygium, if its not progressing or causing dry eye symptoms just use eye drops artificial drops 4 times a day if its progressing, you may have to undergo surgery.

By your history i think you have something known as a pterygium. Look it up in google images. If this is what you have then it cannot be cured by medications, you will need to go in for surgery as early as possible. If you wait then there will be more chances of corneal scarring and poor postoperative results.
