    And wyominggrandma is right, eye issues are always emergencies. Signs of pain include a red eye, holding the eye closed, blinking a lot, copious clear discharge- sometimes you see crusting along the side of the face. They are great at hiding pain so even a very subtle sign should be investigated, the sooner you can start treating the better!

    Had a bit of a google and that looks about right, very interesting :) She isn't in pain and doesn't seem to be having any eyesight trouble but I've got the a-okay off mum to get the vet out :p Thanks for your help!

    What is odd is both eyes are not the same.

    The corpora nigra are not always symmetrical but if they are vastly different, there may be some pathology such as an iris cyst or tumor. If they are different enough to concern you, have them checked out or get a better photo (really hard with a regular digital camera or phone camera).

    Can someone tell me what you're seeing?? Perhaps I need an eye expert myself!
