The periphery of the cornea of ​​the eye appears white, a sign of an accumulation of cholesterol?

BigrozThe edges of the cornea in my eye are white and white. Is it because of the cholesterol? How is it managed?

Hello Arie Prihatnanto, thanks for the question.

From your description, you can talk about a white appearance on the cornea or on the black part of the eye. Usually this is known as arcus senilis which can appear with age and is a build up of fat and cholesterol. This condition is not dangerous and therefore does not require therapy.

Hope that answers your question.
