Pinguecula: You have discovered a normal structure of eyes in the middle years - the pinguecula - which is a fatty, elastic tissue serving a protective function like the callus on your hands. All eyes of folks in the middle years have them to a varying degree. Not a problem.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Do my eyes go crossed eyed because of contacts?

No: Crossed eyes and contacts are not related. There are several reasons why eyes might cross; poor vision, lazy eye (amblyopia), strabismus, etc. Many times the situation can be corrected by a pediatric ophthalmologist...They specialize in crossed eyes.

Lid Hygeine: Try to clean you eyelids daily with dilute "baby shampoo" and a cotton swab. Place a drop of the shampoo in your palm and dilute it with some water. Work up a small lather and then wet the swab. Clean the base of the eyelashes where they come out of lid of both your upper and lower lids. Do this daily for a while. You can hopefully cut back to less frequent cleaning over time.

Thinning sclera: This can be genetic or develop as a result of eye conditions later in life. You may have a genetic problem that is also related to other connective tissue diseases like the bone, or rheumatologic disease like rhematoid arthritis or have developed this as a result of injury/infection. The sclera can appear blue when it gets thinner & needs to be evaluated by an eye md (ophthalmologist) asap.
