Abnormal concavity is seen in the pigment dispersion syndrome and the iris-retraction syndrome. The normal iris demonstrates radial markings with crypts (3 and 83). Blue irides have more prominent markings and crypts than thick, brown irides. It is valuable to compare these surface features between the two eyes. In some pathologic conditions, such as Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis, the normal markings are lost, giving the iris a flat, featureless appearance. The iris also has concentric contraction rolls, which are most prominent when the pupil is large anq the iris bunched.

The angle is typically open at birth and closes over time. The mechanism of glaucoma development is thought to be rotation of the iris stump over the trabecular meshwork. This may be due to the contraction of strands of iris that extend to the trabecular'meshwork from the root of the iris (Grant and Walton, 1974).
