Why Is Ther A Gray Spot On My Eye
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.See 2 more doctor answers
