Dark Ring Around IRis

I have hazel brown eyes, sometime they look very green, sometimes very amber/gold and sometimes light to medium brown, but they have always had a black ring around the iris. I am 43 years old, and I've always had this black ring. It actually accentuates the color of my iris and I love it. I've read a bunch of personal comment on the net about this ring being a condition of the immune system. I must admit, I do not sweat easy, I have asthma, I have mucous problems, all that stuff that is said to be associated with a dark ring around the iris, but, I don't believe it. I didn't have any of these problems until 6 or 7 years ago, but my eyes have always had this dark ring around the iris. What's up with this theory?


This discussion is related to focusing problems with eyes.

Sounds like it suggests to have a possible propensity to have these problems at a later age. I also have the dark ring.  Mucus corelates with me, have a recent concern with kidneys. However, I  tend to sweat excessively, leading to skin problems combined with the blue eye fair skin reddish brown/blonde hair sun concerns. Also, I am currently experiencing problems....it could be about 15 various things right now, but I have been wondering about kidney stones as ovarian has been ruled out. I am border line astmatic and have alot of allergies....which is typical for my overall appearance according to a nurse practitioner I know.
