It is not on the LENS of the eye, since the lens of the eye in physically located inside the eye, and isn't really viewable from the outside with the naked eye.

OP: Can you post another photo looking "straight on" to the eye? The angle of your picture is a little deceiving.

It could certainly be corpora nigra, but the angle of your photo makes it look like its on the cornea.

If it is not corpora nigra, I would have a vet look at it at some point. Since it has been there for a long time, it's not anything that needs to be seen urgently.

Oh ok, that makes sense LovesMyDunnBoy. It just has me concerned because it must affect her focus or something, it's like she doesn't notice things off to her right until she right on it then spooks about it, maybe it makes it shadowed and when it "comes to light" she realizes there is something there.

I'll see if I can find one beau159!

Ok, I know it's in rather low lighting, but it's the best shot I could get. I hope it helps!

Sorry I meant cornea, and sorry, no, that is not normal. The second picture confirms it. With eyes, My vote is see it now, not later. Some things are treatable, but this looks like some sort of weird pigmentation spot or? ...idk.

It's hard for me to get a good shot, everytime she closes her eye or turns her head. She's not much for her pictures I guess LOL

Trinity i'll see what the vet thinks, and if I can email her some photos. Thanks! I know it's weird.

I also just read that corneal ulcerations can leave permanent brown spots on ther cornea. Hard to say till someone sees it in person. The one I posted above apparently is inside the eye.

I really don't think it's a cyst, it's see through, those shown look solid. Idk i'll message my vet.

Now with those other photos, I'd sure have her checked for what Trinity was discussing. That one looks awfully large and in a strange place for the corpora nigra.

If it's nothing, well, then it's nothing, but if it's something, better to have it caught now.
