Problem: There is a white spot on the lateral side of my dog's right eye (at the margin of the center dark circle). Other details include...

- Some irregular dark margin above the white spot.
- Noticed the white spot and the irregular dark margin during regular check up.
- Cotton has no irritated eye, no red eye, no teary eyes
- No apparent discomfort, she does rub her face to pillows and blankets at times but she had been doing it for years and only does so when she's active or playing
- Vision seems ok as she can see dogs on the other side of the park and bark to them

Breed: Purebred Bichon Frise
Age: 12 years old

My Online Vet Response for: White Spot on Dog's Eye
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Gary,
You submitted some good photos, but I am not sure that the 'white' spot shows up well enough for me to give you a diagnosis. What I can see is some pigment changes in the sclera (white part) of her eye, adjacent to her iris.

These changes I would relate to normal aging process. Since she is not showing pain, discharge, irritation/redness, I do not think there is a 'disease' process occurring. But, just to be on the safe side, it might be best to take Cotton to a Veterinary Ophthalmologist for a closer look.

You are more than welcome to submit more photos, especially if you have a 'close-up' lens, that might help to magnify the area.

Please keep us posted by coming back to this page and clicking the 'click here to add your own comments' link below.

Take care,
