I Have Brown Eyes That Are Turning Gray From The Outer Rim Toward The Pupil Should I Be Worried
3 weeks boy. White-blond hair. Pupils seem to be black, but has greyish ring in iris. Fluorescent light reflects off eyes. Has brown freckle. Albinism?
Oculocutaneous: Albinism is a group of 4 conditions, each caused by a specific gene mutation inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. When both parents carry the gene mutation, each of their children has a 25% chance of having oca. See his pediatrician ; a pediatric ophthalmologist for diagnosis ; referral to a geneticist if he has it. Lack of melanin in the retina causes vision problems, so you need to know. ...Read more
I have brown eyes and I have gray blue green rings outside out the eye twice change pure hazel and once blue then I notice golden dark brown greenish?
Lovely. Pigmentation changes. It isn't usually a sign of disease BUT if it were it would be a mineral pigment disease such as
WILSON's DISEASE (copper, ring is copper colored)
or hemosiderosis (iron, ring is iron colored. But skin is steel colored... grey, more noticeable than eye). ...Read more
My son has a small round gray speck on the pupil of his eye. He can feel it, almost like a grain of sand.
Needs evaluation: If it is as you say this could be an embedded piece of metal or other dust that needs to be removed or it could distort a larger area on the eye. HAve him see his doc and s/he can decide if an eye doc should be consulted. I have removed these occasionally with techniques I learned during training. ...Read more
My brother has a bright red squiggly line coming from the bottom of his eye towards his pupil (not yet touching). Eye isn't irritated, otherwise normal?
Blood vessel: Your description sounds like a conjunctival blood vessel that is a normal constituent of the eyes outer moist coat. They tend to become more visible with aging and ocular irritations, like dryness, allergies, infections and exposures. Unless this is a brand new suddenly developing or worsening observance, I would suggest monitoring for change. Artificial tears are a soothing solution for many. ...Read more
Helppp... My left eye has been irritated for two days now... I noticed white/gray spots on my iris near my pupil and the white part of my eye is pink.
There's this girl always rubbing in her eye color to my face I want eyes that are grey not brown she calls them poop colored any idea how to change eye?
Don't be bullied:
Please don't ever feel like you have to change yourself because of someone bullying you. Many people think brown eyes are great or even the best color. Often people insult others because of their own insecurity
if you do decide you want a different eye color, i'd suggest seeing an optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if your eyes will handle contacts--different brands of colored contacts exist. ...Read more
Tiny grey spot at the end of blood vessel in eye and discolored patch with a tinge of yellowish brown on my sclera. Eyes were irritated with sunblock?
I got hit in the eye with a volleyball and now I have a grey spot in my peripheral. Should I be worried?
See a doctor today: There can be different reasons for the spot in your vision, such as inflammation and swelling in the front or back of the eye, a retinal problem, as well as others. This is not something that you should try to let resolve itself. See an eye doctor immediately; they can properly diagnose and treat your vision very rapidly. ...Read more
New?: You may have normal irises with peripupillary color that is different than the periphery.

What's wrong with my eyes? They've been like this for 6 months. There's like a grayish greenish circle around my pupil. It itchs and turns red. It hurts a lot when I try to wear my contacts so I don't wear them. I have been to 5 doctors and none of their ey
There are many possible causes for the pain and discomfort in your eyes. It is certainly advisable to not wear your contact lenses until your have an answer and all your symptoms have resolved completely.
My advice is to seek care from an ophthalmologist in your area. If you have already seen a general ophthalmologist, the next step would be to find a cornea specialist. The american academy of ophthalmology's website has a "find an eye md" feature that can help you: http://www. Aao. Org/find_eyemd. Cfm. ...Read more
I have IIH and last night I saw a faint white string across my vision field. Everything was tinted grey, too. Pupils grew and shrank fast, eyes hurt.
Whites of eyes have developed gray/blue tint, more noticeable in right eye but present in both. Recent eye exam, no issues found. Is this a concern?

Blue sclera: What you are most likely noticing is something called blue sclera, in areas where the tough white connective tissue covering the eye (sclera) is thin enough to show the underlying vascular layer (choroid). This oftentimes can occur alone with no other issues, but it can also be found in certain rare connective tissue diseases. It's probably fine, but I would have a pediatrician take a look at it. ...Read more

Definitely get exam: This could be anything from a visual migraine to a tia. The fact that the gray area is in a quadrant does suggest a possible cerebral problem (visual pathways in the brain rather than from the eye itself), but a direct problem in the eye is still possible. An eye exam by an ophthalmologist and possibly a visual field test will help to determine the cause. ...Read more
I had a gray out. Lost all vision in one eye temporarily while working online and getting stressful email. What was that?
Get checked: May have been an ocular migraine, but another possibility is amaurosis fugax, related to impairment of blood supply and possibly associated with increased risk of stroke. You should have a dilated eye exam, screening for blood pressure/cholesterol and possibly additional testing such as an ultrasound of your carotid arteries. ...Read more
It is common.: The most common "grey spots" on the white of the eye are called pingueculae. These grey spots generally are nasal or temporal and are caused by "actinic degeneration"-- changes from being outdoors in the wind and sun. They can become inflamed and can grow onto the clear cornea and become pterygium, which could impact vision and require removal if they get close to the center of the cornea. ...Read more
Several things: This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor.
