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. They can become inflamed and can grow onto the clear cornea and become pterygium, which could impact vision and require removal if they get close to the center of the cornea.

Mgt/ workup: Usually this represents an increased area of pigmentation. If she is otherwise well and seems to respond to light, I would suggest a follow up visit with your PCP.

See a doctor today: There can be different reasons for the spot in your vision, such as inflammation and swelling in the front or back of the eye, a retinal problem, as well as others.

Pinguecula: Your question does not provide enough details to be sure what you are asking. If the fuzzy spot is on the white of the eye on the nose side of what appears to be the iris, then the likelihood is that these are pinguecula. Pinguecula are a benign change in the conjunctiva most likely related to dryness and pollution.

Particle in vitreous: Almost all people have some floaters. These may be remnants of blood vessels from the time of development of the eye. If you get new floaters it would be imperative to see an ophthalmologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
