Gray area of vision in lower quadrant of one eye that lasts anout 5 minutes then goes away?

There's a gray spot on my eye ball. Is this normal?

There's a gray spot on my eye ball. Is this normal?

It is common.: The most common "grey spots" on the white of the eye are called pingueculae. These grey spots generally are nasal or temporal and are caused by "actinic degeneration"-- changes from being outdoors in the wind and sun.
