1. Get your cholesterol down to normal---diet, exercise, lose weight, eat right if necessary statin like drugs.
2. Sometimes with large reduction of cholesterol they will go away by themselves. If not you should see an Oculoplastic surgeon to talk about surgical removal.

they are called xanthalasma
