Yellow Corneal Rings From AMD Supplements

Yellow rings may be noticeable from patients taking supplements for macular degeneration, probably from the carotene, according to a group from University of Pittsburgh. Not to be confused with Fleischer rings (which I finally saw once in the Kings County clinic last year). Patients may also have yellowish skin. Just another thing to look out for, or something to make yourself look good when asked by a colleague or attending for a differential diagnosis of corneal rings.
