Arcus senilis: Arcus senilis is a blue gray ; white arc or ring that forms around the cornea of the eye. It is very common in older adults. It can be associated with a higher than normal blood cholesterol level (so check that out) but can be a genetic variation also; it does not cause problems with vision and does not need treatment.
