Sliced eyes Turn Blue In The Elderly?
why do parents who have the color of iris not blue before they grow up but turn blue a little when they get older
Iris will regulate the amount of light entering the eye. The color of the iris depends on melanocytes / color cells (eumelanin and pheomelanin). For Indonesians themselves, the average iris color is more brown or blackish. The color of the iris tends to persist and does not just change unless there is a medical condition that causes eye color changes.
For parents in Indonesia, maybe you're not referring to blue iris, but it appears like a bright or whitish circle around the edge of the iris. It is possible that this condition is senile arcus. Senile arcus is the appearance of white or gray circles around the iris which is quite often experienced by the elderly. The cause is not yet certain, but may be related to deposits / accumulation of fat in the corneal layer and affected by the high body cholesterol levels. This condition is generally settled but does not cause complaints or disturbances in vision so parents who experience senile arcus also do not need special treatment.
However, if the iris discoloration is accompanied by other complaints such as pain, a sharp decrease in vision, a lump, or glare, it is necessary to rethink other causes such as infection, injury to the cornea of the eye, and keratitis. If there are complaints to the eye, the person should consult directly with the eye doctor so that the cause can be ascertained and given the right treatment yes.
