For around 6 months now I have had blue rings on the white parts of my eyes. the rings are present on both eyes at the same thickness and spot.
they are nearly the color of a bruise. I have no noticed any vision problems and currently wear glasses to help me measure distance. I have no associated pain other than frequent head aches. there is a family history of MS and other nerological disorders. I went to the local Emergency Room and after waiting for around 7 hours and seeing several doctors, I was released with out a diagnosis, they attending doctors had never seen anything like it.

any help at all would be very appriciated!:)

  • Might you need a sclerologist ? Some "read" the eyes for patterns in certain areas that may relate to certain health problems or stressed areas. These are usually alt. health pros that gather evidence this way. Where exactly in the eyes are these patterns ? If someone was looking at you, is the pattern in the right eye on the top, bottom, right or left ? And to further refine it, if your eye was numbered like a clock, what number is the pattern at ? Or between which numbers ? Same questions on the left eye, too. Sounds different, but IME it can help gather evidence to see what may really be involved.

  • Raplh, I appricate your reply! actually they're about 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch thick rings on each eye located on the white part circling the iris.they're about the color of a bruise and there is no pain envolved but they've been present for months.

  • I also have blue rings aound the iris of my eyes. The doctor said that it had to do with ageing, in other words they do not know. I have also heard that it is a sign of low iron levels. I am anemic and now on iron pills.

  • I thought it could also be a sign of anemia or dehydration and when I went to the ER (around the time I first noticed them) I was given an IV of fluids and iron to combat it and it had no effect on the markings.in reguards to the aging I am only twenty years old. so hopefully they aren't age spots ;)
