Pinguecula from the point of view of Ayurveda
A pinguecula is a type of growth that can form on the conjunctiva of the eye. The color is usually yellowish or very light brown, with a slightly raised, triangle shape.
The most common symptom is the sensation that you have an eyelash or other debris in your eye.
Pinguecula is not a cancer, but it can develop when the eyes are overexposed to UV rays. Other common risk factors include frequent or long-term exposure to dust and wind. Dry eye disease may also be a contributing factor, promoting the growth of pinguecula.
Pinguecula appear close to the cornea, on the white part of the eye between the iris and the nose.
If the pinguecula becomes too large, the tear film may not be able to spread across the surface of the eye. This can cause dry eye symptoms, such as a burning, stinging, itching, and blurred vision.
In some cases, pingueculae can become swollen and inflamed, which is known as pingueculitis. These bumps or growths may contain a combination of protein, fat, calcium, or all three.
According to Ayurveda, Pinguecula can be caused by aggravated Pitta and Kapha doshas. It is recommended to reduce foods and lifestyle habits that aggravate them.
