The two images below were taken on June 13th 2007, by Ray McLeod, Opthalmic Photographer at the WEEU (West of England Eye Unit), at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. My thanks to him and also to Dr Hilmi.

Left eye __

My left eye. The pigment that has flaked off can be seen as a dark arc along the bottom of the iris. I believe that the particles that look like dust, above the pupil towards the top of the photo, are flakes of pigment in the Krukenberg's spindle. Click on the image to enlarge it. ______

Right eye___

My right eye. You can see where I had the laser treatment at the bottom of the iris, below the dark pigment. The yellow line is caused by the eye drops used. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Ideally, a digital slit lamp would be used to take the photo's, but this wasn't available.


The images below are of my eyes, taken on 20th March 2003, by Stewart Price B.Sc (Hons), FCOptom.

Unfortunately, I was unable to obtain these two images from disk, therefore the clarity is not as good as it could have been.
