Eye/sclera pigment: The white part of the eyes sometimes have a yellow or brown pigmentation. In older patients, it can be due to sun exposure (pinguecula) or increased scleral pigmentation. Have your eyemd take a look to see if it is a nevus on the conjunctival or increased scleral pigmentation like pam: primary acquired melanosis, and other conditions.
