Is it normal to still see the suction ring on my eye 6 weeks after lasik? This is the dry eye and blurry distance vision. Feels like and eyelash is in

No: You cannot still see a mark from the suction ring used during the creation of the lasik flap. Sounds like symptoms are more related to your dry eye. Discuss with your surgeon.

Why do I see a yellow ring while eyes are closed when you rub your eyes?

Why do I see a yellow ring while eyes are closed when you rub your eyes?

There is an increase: In intraocular pressure when compressing the eye. This in turn can activate your photoreceptors (rods/cones) in the retina due to the vitreous gel, that fills the posterior (back) portion of the eye, shifting and inducing traction on the retina. It is not advisable to rub your eyes that hard.

I have a slight brown colored shade/ring around iris in my eyes that I never noticed before so it is normal or something that I should worry about?

I have a slight brown colored shade/ring around iris in my eyes that I never noticed before so it is normal or something that I should worry about?

Depends: Depends on your eye color and where the ring is. If it on the white part of the eye, it is normal and likely there your whole life. If it is on the cornea in front if the iris, then that is certainly not normal and can be a sign of a condition called wilson's dz. If you are not sure, see an ophthalmologist right away. Good luck!

Flashes ; floaters: The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing flashes ; floaters. This can indicate a retinal tear. As the retina detaches, change or loss in your side vision is the next symptom. You should see your eye doctor to check the retina.

I have brown eyes but there is a blue ring around it is this normal?

I have brown eyes but there is a blue ring around it is this normal?

? corneal arcus: If you are referring to the "blue ring" around the peripheral cornea, this is called corneal arcus--represents cholesterol deposition from the limbal blood vessels that normally appears in people over 40. More often visible in brown colored irises due to darker background. If you are younger than 40 and are noticing arcus, an examination by an Eye MD to verify & check lipid profile important.

I'm recently seeing red ring around my eye And I wear contacts for almost two years now never had this problem but now I see it. I'm not sure what it is?

I'm recently seeing red ring around my eye And I wear contacts for almost two years now never had this problem but now I see it. I'm not sure what it is?

Ciliary flush: The red ring is called a ciliary flush and it is caused by inflammation in the cornea, the clear crystal over the colored part of the eye, or inside the eye. Most likely it is due to your contact lens. Try leaving out the lens and see if the ring goes away. Then check with your eye doctor so he/she can find the problem.

My eye has a gold ring around the pupil, and all my colors are changing (i see white as pink and others are changed). I cut my cornea a few years back.

My eye has a gold ring around the pupil, and all my colors are changing (i see white as pink and others are changed). I cut my cornea a few years back.

Needs a full eval: The gold ring you mention may be evidence of a copper metabolism defect called wilson's disease that can be treated. Without treatment your future is bleak. I would get in to see someone within the next week & start the process of sorting this out.

Normal to have very small ring-like lights in vision in complete dark with eye movements. Are these flashes? Got retina examined a week back, no issues?

Phosphenes: Your description sounds like phosphenes related to movement of the vitreous jelly in the eye during eye movement. It should decrease with time but retinal followup is recommended.

What to do if I have rings around my eyes when I was a preteen. If you have kayser-fleischer rings does it mean you have wilsons disease or could it be something normal?

What to do if I have rings around my eyes when I was a preteen. If you have kayser-fleischer rings does it mean you have wilsons disease or could it be something normal?

Let's sort this out: You had rings around your IRISES (actually the plural is irides, but never mind), not your "eyes" (like a raccoon) when you were young and they went away? That's the opposite of what happens with Kayser-Fleischer rings. If you're normal at 35, you don't have Wilson's disease. What to do is nothing. Give my regards to Broad Street. (My compliments for spelling Kayser-Fleischer correctly, BTW.)

My eyes are blue, but the ring of my iris is turning from black to purple instead of white. What could this be, should I see an optician or a doctor?

Unclear: Your description is unclear, but if you're concerned about what you're seeing, particularly if your having vision changes or pain, you should see an ophthalmologist.

Daughter is tired pale, rings under eyes stomach upset and something on her tounge day after 1st injection of methotrexate. Is this normal?

Yes: Unfortunately Methotrexate can have some pretty nasty adverse effects including those that you mention. If the side effects are too unbearable talk to your doctor about treating them or using an alternative med with lower incidence of side effects.

I have yellow rings around my mouth and hands/feet are yellow (eyes aren't and liver enzymes normal) what could this be?

I have yellow rings around my mouth and hands/feet are yellow (eyes aren't and liver enzymes normal) what could this be?

Carotenemia: Infants who take an excessive amount of so called "yellow vegetables" such as sweet potato, carrot, and tomato develop yellow stain over their palms, soles, and face especially around the nose. Harmless!

I see eye floayers when I look up or in a bright room is that normal?

I see eye floayers when I look up or in a bright room is that normal?

Probably: Floaters are common and generally of not much concern unless they are new. If the floaters are new or you having other symptoms with them like a change in vision, side vision or flashes of light, then you need a retinal evaluation.
