Infant has white ring around her pupils
My 1 mth old daughter has bluish/greyish eyes that are slowly getting darker but she has always had a white ring around her pupil...what could that be? My husband is black and I am of indian descent but her dad's great great grandfather is Irish and has blue eyes. His grandfather has all black features except he has blue eyes. I know this is a recessive gene but what is the white ring...it's not around her iris but her pupil. THanks

I'm sorry but I'm having trouble visualizing it.  Sometimes you just have to see it in person.  All I can say is that you can have your pediatrician take a quick look at to be on the safe side.  Sometimes, as a lay person,  it is really difficult to know what you are looking at when it comes to the eye.  What you are seeing could be a totally normal thing but in rare instances, a white ring around the cornea could be a sign of an abnormality.  Playing it safe, I would say show it to your pediatrician and ask him if a referral to a pediatric ophthalmologist is in order.
