Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
The blue color is an interplay between vasculature, including any blood which may have leaked out of the blood vessels, and pigmentation. Blood in this area breaks down into its own hemosiderin pigment. Then there is the natural pigmentation of this area, pigmentation which may be increased by sun exposure.
There are several cause for pigmentation changes in the whites of the eyes. the most common is a freckle or mole (nevus), which are both collections of pigmented cells called melanocyes in the lining that covers the eye. These collections of pigmented cells can occur anywhere on the surface of the body, including the eye.
this may be due to arteriovenous malformation in the eyelid area. the arterial and venous blood are getting mixed causing it to get that color. you need to get a angiogram / doppler done to confirm the diagnosis. consult a dermatologist
BLUE DISCOLOURATION MOST PROBABLY INDICATES THAT THERE IS LOTS OF VENOUS BLOOD ACCUMULATED IN THE REGION. UNDERLYING PATHOLOGY THOUGH NEEDS TO BE FOUND OUT. MAY BE RELATED TO BLOOD VESSELS OR SKIN PIGMENTATION.
It seems a pigmentation problem . Hemosiderrin pigment usually is deposited in large amount in this area due to underlying blood disorders. Get your blood checked in detail.
