Why is my outer iris is dark?

Multicolored iris

It's very common for people to have variable colors in their iris. Uncommonly , the change in colors can be due to a mole on your iris. If the colors appear to be changing over time, it's important to have your ophthalmologist evaluate this further.

Dr. Ajay K. Gupta answered:

What could cause the iris to look dark and faded after suffering a thermal burn?

Probably the cornea

Burns
I presume the thermal burn occurred to the cornea. Following a burn, the cornea will look opaque from edema or swelling. Viewed through a swollen cornea, the iris can appear faded.
