Hi- I've developed a photo as B&W. I attempted to apply the eye enhancement but there was not change when I adjusted the exposure slider to lighten eyes. I'm using LR 6.9 with Mojave 10.14.6 on a 27" iMac. I must be missing a step somewhere but I don't know. Maybe the exposure slider isn't the right choice? Thanks in advance.

You mentioned a black and white image. In a color image, Iris enhance slight increases exposure, clarity and adds a lot of saturation. In my version of LIghtroom, while newer, I think yours is the same, saturation is off for a black and white image. So the Iris Enhance is just clarity and exposure and that wouldn't do too much. That might explain it.

Moving the Exposure slider should definitely show a result, also on a B&W image. What about the Density and the Flow of the brush. Is either of these perhaps set to a low value? That would explain not seeing anything when you move the slider...
