    You can drip some artificial tears to keep your eyes moist and lubricating, and use the prescription eye medications to heal the conjunctiva given rise to by the pinguecula. In your diets, you should eat more foods rich in vitamin C and vitamin E, such as sweet potatoes, garlic, pumpkin seeds, wheat germs, nuts, carrots, pumpkin, mangoes, apricots, ect., to help fight degeneration of cells in the eyes. As a pinguecula can be caused by frequent exposure to sunlight without taking any protective measures, so you had better wear sunglasses when you go outside to avoid exposing your eyes to the bright sunlight. Wish you recover soon.

    Pinguecula is a non-cancerous conjunctival degeneration. It is a yellowish nodular on the conjunctiva, very common for people above 40. Pinguecular is usually coming from damage to the conjunctiva. The collagen fiber degenerats and a thick and yellow fiber formes a pinguecula. It can cause irritation. Eye dryness might make it more yellowish and irritated. It might be caused by exposure to UV rays, toxic chemicals, or any other possible damage to conjunctiva. Early staged pinguecula could be reversed. Use humidifier to add moist in the air of your room, and instill some airtificial tear to lubricate eyes. Use some meidcation to control the inflammation of conjunctiva. If the conjunctiva healed, then the pinguecula of early stage could clear out too. But a well-established pinguecular seems react to the medication not very well. Some cosmetic surgery could help to remove the it.

    Soothing your eye with herbal eyewash prepared with chamomile or eyebright is most effective remedy. Do not use eye drops that are intended for whitening the eye. They are harmful and invasive. More importantly, stay out of irritating environments such as dusty and heavily polluted areas to avoid further irritation to the eyes.
