your eye

It is call the ball - Eye (is the black dot and the color) and the white part is the ball - from eye ball.

No it is definately not the sclera. The sclera is the "protection layer" of the eye. I don't know if there is a word for the "white part" in the eye in the english language. But in German it's called Augenweiß. (Sclera is called Sklera in German, and int the colloquial language Lederhaut - so it cannot be called sclera)

It's called the Sclera, and I think it's probably lack of sleep, maybe age, and possibly just genetic tendency

im not a 100% sure but i belive its called the cornia

and as far as it being tinted that come from lack of poor diet and sleep

i hope this helps

It's starts with a C I think...

The cornea, I think.


The white part of the eye is called the sclera.

Have their always been grey patches? If it is changing i would definetly ask an optician.

There could be a number of reasons, race, short sightedness, age, diseases etc if you consult your optician they could give you an answer.

The "medical" or official name for it is the sclera. The colored part is the iris. There are so many reasons that the sclera can appear "off" it's hard to say... have you had an eye exam lately?


sclera is the correct answer. Grey coloring can be caused by irritation and is usually nothing major. If you have a family history of melanoma you may want to have a Dr. check it.
