Feline corneal sequestrum is a condition in which dead corneal tissue accumulates on and around the cornea resulting in the development of dark spots on the eye.
These spots may vary in size and depth and range in color from opaque to dark black.
The condition is most common in cats with light-colored eyes and is particularly common in the Persian, Himalayan, Burmese, and Siamese breeds.
Feline iris melanoma is another potential cause.
It occurs when abnormal pigmented cells invade and proliferate throughout the iris.
These cells may be either benign or malignant (cancerous), but represent small tumors in either case.
Many cats are born with, or grow to develop, very interesting eye coloring patterns that may incorporate dark spots.
Most often, color variations are harmless genetic features that in some cases are seen to be quite desirable when selecting a pet.
However, some dark spots on the eyes of your pet may be a sign of a serious issue.
