No: Sometimes melanin pigment deposits can give appearance of graying. This is normal. In older age grey plaque in sclera are normal. If your sclera is progressively getting grey it may be thinning due to "collagen vascular diseases. You must see an ophthalmologist that then will refer you to a rheumatologist for more workup & diagnosis if necessary.
