    arcus senilis, which commonly occurs in elderly. if it occurs in young, it is due to hypercholesterolemia.

    Correct answer:

    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.
