Pingueculum: If it is a small yellow spot, possibly raised, sometimes mobile (moveable), it's probably a pingueculum. This is degenerative tissue deposited in response to exposure to uv radiation (in most cases, sunlight). It is just like a "sunspot" on your skin, except its on the white of your eye. If it is generalized yellowing of the white of your eye, see your primary medical doctor.
