Fatty deposits, which accumulate in arteries, could be visible in the eyes, said Lancaster University’s Director of the Clinical Anatomy Learning Centre, Adam Taylor.

The deposits appear as grey rings around the iris – the coloured part of the eye.

About 70 per cent of people over 60 years old have the halo, which could be a sign of heart disease, said Taylor.

“Although you can’t see your heart beating in your chest, there are visible, external signs that can indicate if something is wrong with your heart, before you suffer from a life-changing ‘cardiovascular event’,” he wrote on The Conversation.
