In brief: Corneal deposits

In certain inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the anterior eye, a deposit of calcium and other minerals will occur as a horizontal band on the surface of the cornea.
This can disturb the vision and is sometimes painful. Your ophthalmologist can suggest ways to treat and sometimes remove this surgically.
