This question already has an answer here:

So anyway, this is my first model and I'm currently working on the eyes. Yet I've been having a problem.

When I click Ctrl+N to invert the gray part, the white parts invert themselves instead. Is there anyway to fix this? Please help.

Yeah, while in Edit Mode, tap A to deselect everything, then tap C, so you can color in the areas you want to select. (Hold Shift while clicking to deselect, if need be.)

Right Click to exit Circle Select mode.

Simply select the area you wish to flip normals on,
then do your Ctrl+N trick.
