I have never seen a blue eyed dragon. I don’t believe they exist.

I have seen dragons with white eyes. I have seen dragons with photoshopped eyes.

Recently I have seen dragons with eyes that look diseased.

After year and years of no blue eye mutation reproducing I feel even stronger that there is no such mutation. We don’t have brown, green, blue, ect.

Dragons have white irises with varying degrees of vascular activity. (White to red irises)

This photo may help to understand what is going on.


Normal chicken eye on left. Eye lesions and irregular pupil caused by Marek's disease on right.

After discussing this photo with several breeders Mareks's disease is the universal conclusion.
