What does a white spot on your iris mean?

In brief: Normal variation

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.
