This is iris pigment that has settled on the anterior surface of the anatomical lens. Note the velvety or granular texture that stops at what would be the undilated pupil margin. In this patient it was a unilateral condition, reducing best corrected visual acuity to 20/25 compared with 20/20 for the fellow eye. The patient has a sibling who has the same condition, also affecting only one eye and minimally affecting vision.

A wandering, wondering dreamer, Roberta Mander was born with questions in her eyes. She has since sought answers to her questions through many lenses.

As an ophthalmic medical technician she learned the importance of enhancing others' view of the world.

As a pilot, poet, writer and adventurer she surveyed her world from inside, outside, above and beyond before injuries brought her back to earth.

Through her work in photography, Robbie says she is moving "from disability to possibility".
