What's your diagnosis?
I'll post the correct answer in a few days!
I see arcus senilis and premature cataract as well
senile corneal arc
arcus senilis, which commonly occurs in elderly. if it occurs in young, it is due to hypercholesterolemia.
Arcus corneae (or arcus senilis in the elderly or arcus juvenilis in the young).
In young people this indicates hyperlipidemia. In the elderly, it can also be due to hyperlipidemia or it's harmless.
Separate names with a comma.
