Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having a white ring around the cornea. This is called as Arcus senilis and is common in people aged more than 50 years. If you are aged below 50 years then evaluation to rule out hypercholesterolemia and atheroscelrosis is required.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you

This can be because of corneal degeneration, this requires examination by a ophthalmologist for examination to find out the cause.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.
