    Default good pictures of horse eyes/pupils and...

    I'm googling and not really coming up with them...

    Looking for good pictures that show the pupil, the iris and what is normal and what cataracts might look like...

    oh, thank you. That is a good one.

    I don't see quite what I'm looking for yet...

    Two things, one is I want to know what part of the eye is the part that looks like squid ink bubbling up... I have no other way to describe it. You know how in some (all? now that I'm typign this, I have to go home and look at everyone tomorrow!) it's really defined? It looks like thunder clouds building, but is dark, not cloudy or light? I don't know what that is...

    The other thing I'm looking for is a white or yellow 'spot' on the iris that can grow/change. Doesn't protrude, seems to be part of the iris, but has grown super, super slowly over the years...

    As always, Ghazzu ROCKS...

    I googled that term, and came up with this: http://www.evj.co.uk/archive/downloa...19_512_514.pdf

    Figures 4 & 5 show exactly what I'm talking about. I don't entirely understand the article... how much would something like that affect vision?
