Question

 

 

When pressure is applied onto the cornea whether it's from rubbing the eye a bit too hard with the knuckles or weathers its from a poke in the eye ,could the pressure on the cornea force the aqueous humour onto the iris mainly on the outsides of the iris were the cornea ,aqueous humour and the iris are closer together ,could it result in a change in iris color (darker or lighter discoloration) if the aqueous humour was to be forced into the iris?

Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

In normal eye, any elevation in the intraocular pressure, there is also increase in the drainage of aqueous humor outside the eye.

Pressure on the eye couldn't cause discoloration of the iris.
