Grey circle around the pupil of the eye
Dear Medhelp,
                     My mam who is 60 years old has Green eyes, however has developed a grey ring around the pupil
of each eye.

Should we be concerned? Could you tell me what the cause of it is?


Many thanks


Paul

Sometimes our iris color can fade a bit with age as blue eyes get a little less blue and green eyes get a little less green.  Arcus senilis of the cornea can also cause some changes in the perceived eye color.  What you are seeing may just be normal aging of the eye, however, it is always a good idea for her to have a complete exam with an ophthalmologist.
