Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!


Is there a distinct mass or growth there or just a diffuse color change on an otherwise normally looking iris?



Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no growth or mass. Just chamge in color. Appears to see fine.
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 5 years ago.

Based on your description, the most likely cause for this is a benign melanosis.

An irritation of the iris, an iritis is also possible but a tumor is not likely (iris melanoma)
