An Eye for Details

Yikes! This is an older patient who has diabetes, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, chronic constipation, and a recent URI who had no eye symptoms and was quite unaware of this finding until he looked in a mirror. His visual acuity is unchanged. There is no photophobia, discharge, or foreign body sensation.

Challenge: What's your diagnosis?
