Depends: Pigmentation on the cornea is always abnormal. A few drugs can cause this. Ask this question to your eye doctor.

Many possibilities: Corneal pigmentation can be due to many things: deposits of iron from a foreign body, deposits of copper from Wilson's disease, deposits of drugs such as amiodarone, a corneal scar. See an ophthalmologist to examine your eyes and give you a better answer.
