I am currently suffering in my left eye with inflamed Pinguecula known as Pingueculitis. This has the effect of causing severe itching and gives a constant foreign body sensation which can even interfere with sleep.
It looks like treatment with steroid eye drops is recommended when Pingueculitis occurs but presumably steroid drops cannot be used long term. Surgery to remove Pinguecula looks like it is only done in extreme circumstances as the surgery is not for the squeamish to say the least.
Does anyone have any advice or practical experience of being treated for Pingueculitis ?
I am based in the UK so if anyone can recommend a good consultant then that would be great.
