Iris is not round

Hello. So I have a friend whose, as the title suggest, irises in the eyes are not completely round. On each eye, on the sides of the irises closest to the nose, part of the edge is flattened out. Imagine how the moon looks just before or just after it is full; this will give you an idea of the shape of his eyes. I've tried researching this and have found nothing. Any help you may provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This is probably congenital.  He/she should see an ophthalmologist.

For me, sometime iris in my both eyes have jutted out around 0.3 to 0.5mm only which part that closely to the nose. It happen after I use iPad. Is this normal? Can it cause by eye strain, watch IPad a lot, not fit glasses astigma, or high myopia? I just have my eyes check 3weeks ago for general, and dr. Told m ok just having astigma 0.25 n 0.50, myopia -6.00 n -5.50.
