Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Are you available to chat about the circles you mentioned?
Hi again....just type a quick response so we can get started.
Hi, I am ready
OK...give me just a minute to type an answer and then you can ask more questions.
Fisrt, it is very unlikely that you have any problem to worry about. The medical term for the gray circles is arcus senilis....also called arcus cornealis ( I like that term better as I don't equate the mid 60's as any bit senile (-: )....many people develope the circles and don't even relize that they are there. They are so common that we really don't even comment about them in a routine eye exam. Is that helpful and what else can I discuss with you today?
But it comes and goes. I mean that there are days that it almost not visible and like right now, it almost look like it's taking over my brown part. why does this happen
Is the circle in one or both eyes?
OK....let me get you to take a look at the Mayo clinic website on Arcus. When you have reviewed that website let's continue with your question.....but so far I am pretty sure that we are on track here...http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/arcus-senilis/AN01493
