Pigmentation indicates toxins. The color lays on the fibers of the Iris or Sclera, not indenting it like a Lacunae. When I see Pigmentation I think of working with cleansing the body of toxins. The color of the pigment gives a clue of the best way in which the toxins can be cleansed.

It is said that pink in the sclera indicates alkalosis, I personally think it can also indicate acidosis.

Pink Sclera


Indicates toxins in the blood. I do not have an example of this Iris sign.

Sometimes red lines in the Iris are vascularized trabecula but they are not considered pigmentation.
