Now some people may refer to the white of the eye as albumin, but the actual term is the SCLERA. That’s what the white of your eye is called. The white of the eye is not albumin just because it’s white. Albumin is present in the lining of the cornea or the dark part of your eye. The sclera consists of collagen and elastin. Beneath the sclera is the vitreous humor of the eye. When the eye is inflamed, it turns red.
