My daughter has a ring around her iris is it a kayser-Freischer ring?

Hi
I have a 24 month old daughter who haven’t had any medical problem since birth. Recently on checking her eyes i noticed a brown ring around her iris (as seen on the attached image) and iam worried if this is a kayser-Freischer ring, an indication of a liver disease.

kayser-freischer-ring

It could be normal pigmentation.
How long have this been there?
Kayser-freicher rings are possible but needs to be related with other symptoms and genetic and family history as it is an inherited disorder.
Have an Ophthalmologist verify Kaysers, and an internist run a Wilson’s screening.
