In brief: Genetics/Aging

People of darker skin, asians, hispanics and especially blacks can sometime gain what we sometimes call 'racial melanosis, ' as we get older. Pinguecula, usually not described as brown, is a degeneration from sun exposure.
Sometimes you can get nevus, a freckle. Rarely, one can get conjunctival melanoma. Best to let your eyemd examine you to get an accurate answer.

In brief: Grey spots

Sometimes I have patients worried after they notice small grey spot(s) on the white of the eyes which are a normal part of aging of the eye.
These are light grey though and not brown like melanosis or nevi.
