I can not tell from the picture.  You may be describing an Arcus senilius. This can be a normal finding or sign of elevated cholesterol.  Mention it to your doctor when you renew you contact lens prescription.

If the loss of color is actually a grayish or bluish ring around the outer edge of the iris I should think it is arcus senilis. If so, contact lenses have nothing to do with it.
