In brief: Eye color change
If you are using certain glaucoma eyedrops, such as latanoprost or travatan, the eye color may change.
If you have certain diseases, the eye color may change. If the iris is changing color, you should be seen by an ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam.

In brief: Probably not
What you are likely observing is a ring of white around the edge of the cornea called arcus senilis.
This is very common and is indicative of age-related deposition of cholesterol in the eye. It is a good reason to have your pcp check your cholesterol but otherwise usually isn't something to worry about unless you have this in one eye and not the other.
