What does a white spot on your iris mean?

Normal variation

Eyes
Irises have a variable surface pattern which sometimes includes one or more whitish patches integrated into the pattern. These are benign and add to the variety of our appearance. Rarely it could represent a tumor but these are generally dark and of course may increase in size. Be sure you are seeing your iris and not the cornea which is the window in front of the eye.

What does a white spot on your iris mean?

Unusual if not Blue

Iris
Actual "spots" on the iris are unusual. Some area may be white in blue eyes, but not really sure what you are asking. Has it been there a long time? Is it growing? Are you sure it's the iris?

Can you lose your vision from a white spot on the iris part?

Uncertain problem

Iris
A difficult question to answer without an examination. A white spot on the "iris" is what you are noticing, but may be a white spot on the cornea. The latter could be a scar, degeneration, inflammatory pannus, infiltrate, etc., each with a different prognosis and treatment. It also will depend where on the cornea that this spot is located. If right in the center, it will most likely affect you.

Is having a white spot in the iris area a sign of corneal ulcer?

Depends

Cornea
A white spot on the cornea could mean a corneal ulcer and is usually associated with pain. The iris is inside the eye, the cornea in the clear dome over the eye
