In written iris descriptions you will often find descriptions using 
adjectives to further define the tint or tone of a color. Such as "pale 
blue-white". In this case it simply means that the iris is white, but 
further it is a white with a pale blue tone to it, sometimes known as a 
"cool white". There are many shades/tones of white as a color and this 
is one way of trying to more accurately describe the tone of white that 
it is.
