Can anyone give me any clues about the following condition?  I'm 
not able to find any information on it.

There is a 45 year old male on CompuServe who posted photographs 
of his eyes showing a closeup of his eyes.  The iris appears to 
be dark blue and there is a lighter color, greenish-yellow around 
the pupil and radiating outward.  He claims that this lighter 
coloration occurred rather suddenly and recently, when he was an 
adult.

Is this condition also a form of mosaicism?  Are you aware of a 
mechanism whereby eye color could change in this way?
mechanism whereby eye color could change in this way?  I could 
even send you the photos (GIF) if you'd like.
