White to Yellow Spots on Lower Left Eyelid Suddenly Appear

Posted by coffe300am

I just woke up one morning and they were there. About a month ago. No pain or irritation. Right under the skin.  They haven't grown or faded. The other eyelid is fine. My friends and family tell me I'm just getting older and they're problably fat spots. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of them? I'm a 49 year old white male.
