EYE eye-what's going on here then?

Three-year-old Olivia Gaskin has a perfect shape of a crown in her one of her eyes which an expert claims may be caused by clumps of pigment.

It appears as though by a freak coincidence, the clumps have formed the shape of a crown, which must mean it has the royal seal of approval!

Her mother Julie Suridge, of School Lane, Ufford, said: “We never really noticed it before. It was only when my son took a picture and noticed something in her eye.

“When he zoomed in, we said 'oh my God, there is a shape of a crown in her eye.' I am not worried about it as I think it is just a blemish but is very unusual.”

Optometrist Adrian Kite, of Kite CR and Son, in Berners Road, said: “It is difficult without having seen it but if it is in the iris- the coloured part of the eye- it has got to be the pigment.

“Clumps of pigment usually appear in spot form but in unusual cases, they can form shapes, like in this case.

“It will probably be fairly constant in her life.”
