Black circle around iris
I woke up this morning with a black circle around my iris. I have no pain, no swelling, no unusual eyesight symptoms (no flashes of light), vision is not impaired in any way. I am not dizzy, I have no numbness. Other than the black circle, I have no other symptoms of anything else.

I am concerned to due the suddeness of this event. Should I go to an emergency room, or can it wait til I see an ophthamologist?

If you have pain or blurred vision I would go to the ER. If you don't then I would get on the phone and talk to an ophthalmologist about an office visit Monday AM.
