Should I be worried about my eyes? I have grey shadow like patches on my sclera...?

Does anyone know what it means or if it is cause for concern?

    Nobody has flawless evenly-white sclera.

    Hardly anyone ever sees the part of their eyes which you have photographed, either, so most people would be unaware of those patches even if they had them.

    But ultimately those photos are insufficient to determine whether there is a genuine problem or not as that requires an eye examination.

    I suggest that you book an appointment for an eye health examination with a qualified optician/ophthalmologist. If that person spots anything of concern then you’ll be referred to a specialist doctor or to your family doctor.
