Is there any chance my vision can be affected by my arcus senilis if it grows beyond my iris?
APR 25, 2017
I have arcus senilis (a ring of fat or calcium deposits in the cornea) in my left eye. Over time I have noticed that the white ring seems to be getting more extensive. Is there any chance my vision can be affected if it grows beyond my iris? Is there a treatment to prevent further "growth" of the ring or to get rid of the existing ring?
I have never seen an arcus senilis affect vision. However, if it is in only one eye and is progressing rapidly I would see an ophthalmologist to determine if that is the correct diagnosis.
