White Around the Iris
The iris is the colored part of your eye and normally the line between the white of the eye and the iris is sharp. It’s normal in older people for a white, hazy line to start to develop around the outside of this colorful ring. This is called arcus senilis. In younger people, though, it can indicate high cholesterol that may be concerning. If it shows up only on one side, it may signal a blood vessel issue.
