Eye pigment: can you post a photo? it would be most helpful? Most likely not a concern. Some folks get some pigment deposit on the white of the eye. Rarely is this a concern, but as with issues like this, seeing it for the provider is very important to help make a correct diagnosis and inform you correctly.
