1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Most pingueculas are a shade of white or slightly yellowish.
They signify elastotic degeneration of the sclera and are usually an aging phenomenon.

In brief: Usually light yellow

They are yellow due to fatty elastic tissue which makes them up.
Sometimes this is so pale it looks white but it is not every truly white.
