Pigment dispersion from the iris sphincter in patient with Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG). Pigment dispersion syndrome is part of the pseudoexfoliation (PSX) spectrum, normally in older patients with pupillary ruff. In this example, the image captures the pigment prior to settling on the lens (PSX), or on the corneal endothelium commonly seen forming the distinctive appearance of Krukenberg's Spindle.
