Arcus senilis: I presume you are referring to a whitish grey ring in the cornea that appears all the way around the colored part of the eye. Most commonly this is not due to cholesterol. It is a normal finding in people as the age, called arcus senilis. It can be a sign of elevated cholesterol in people younger than 45. It is more visible/noticeable in individuals with dark coloring of the eye.
