    Pinguecula is a common type of eye disease, which appears as a small, yellowish nodule on the conjunctiva at near nose side and elder people are more easily get pinguecula than young adults. But it's not been found that pinguecula can cause headaches. Your headaches may be caused by other problem.

    No, it isn't. A pinguecula is a common, benign yellowish growth of the mucous membrane that lines the eyeball and underside conjunctiva. It can be found in the open space between our eyelids, which also happens to be the area exposed to the sun.The damage of conjunctiva can lead to a pinguecula. But it is impossible to cause headaches.
