Wow I had not known that so many other people had two colored eyes. I have a steel grey eye and a bright green eye that has gold stripes. My family has been in the air force all of my life and even with all of the moving I have never seen anyone else with bi-colored eyes. Kids how saw my eyes were never very nice in their comments and even now at 21 years old I still hear young people saying things. I was even asked once if I used one contact just to make myself look strange. But I just push the nasty things people say away most people think that my eyes are cool and I love them.

Hey guys,heres my description of my eyes.Ones blue and the others green BUT in one eye the black puple is always small and in the other always big until i get drunk,tired or sick then they both get small.ALSO on one eye just at bottom of coloured part there is a tiny freckle as in on my eye ball just where the colour meets the white part.

Does anyone know more about this or have something similar????

Interesting points to know.. FIRSTLY.......in the film "28weeks later" the kids in the end survive the plague/diease cuz they were immune to it cuz they had two different coloured eyes.

SECONDLY....in a new film about to come out called "the unborn" its about a girl who has two different coloured eyes which they say means she had a twin bro/sis while she was in her mothers stomach thru pregnancy but the other baby died.film goes onto be about how the dead bro/sis comes back to haunt them.....yes i don't like the sound of this either :( :( but just interesting to know :roll:

My 7 year old has one eye that has an eye color that is split completely in half. His eye is half brown and half blue. He had an American Indian tell him when he was 5 that in their beliefs when a child is born with eyes like him they consider them the chosen one. It was cute, when he was 5, when he told people that he was the chosen one when they noticed but now he's getting a little older it's harder for him to express it to his friends. I don't think the chosen one thing will break the ice for to much longer, LOL. :lol:

I was also born with two different colored eyes. My left eye is blue, and my right eye is split, half blue, half brown. The idd part is that no one in my family has ever had two different colored eyes, and neither of my parents have blue or brown eyes- my moms are gray and my dads are green. I definetly do not have 20/20 vision. I have had glasses since I was 7, and my vision is getting progressively worse. I've read that it is hereditary, but no one in my family has it and neither do my children. I have two children, and they both have brown eyes, probably because it is dominant and their dad has brown eyes.

It's always interesting to see what people have to say when they notice. Sometimes you can tell that they notice without saying anything by the way that they stare lol. My favorite is when people say, "I think you lost a contact!"

It hasn't affected my son's vision as of yet. No one in our family has brown eyes except my husbands great grandfather who is Cherokee Indian. I have gray green eyes and my husband has blue. My son was born with blue eyes but over time while feeding him I discovered a spec in his eye then it got bigger and bigger. Crazy how life is shaped and the different traits we all have that set us apart from the masses.

I am so amazed to stumble upon this website and realise there are so many people out there just like me! I have two very distinctly different eyes, one orangely brown with a triangle of blue up the top and the other blue like my three sisters. dad has green eyes and mum has a one blue and one hazel eye so always assumed this was just a mutation that was passed on to me! Always felt like a freak as a child and was very embarressed about them but now in my 30's I've starting to enjoy being unique :D Makes me laugh to hear other people have all heard the classic "did you KNOW you've got two different coloured eyes' and "so do you see differently out of each eye?' The most memorable comment I had came from a 5 year old who asked why I had a silver eye and a rusty eye? Thanks to everybody who has posted comments on this board, has really made my day to read it :mrgreen: Jules NZ

Well, My daughter has two different color eyes. I was the only one that noticed it when she was a baby. When I fed her, I could see a fait discoloration in her left eye. Now, the one eye is green like mine, and the other is half blue and half brown.
She was constantly sick and snored really bad, to the point that she would wake herself up. So, I took her to the ear nose and throat specialist. He noticed her eye and asked if anyone in my family or my husbands family had lighter color spots in their hair. We both said no. But, a few weeks later, I ran into my husbands cousin and sure enough, "He Did".
I can't remember what the doctor had called it, but I do remember that it started with a "W".

You know its funny, when I was young an American Indian in Indiana came up to my family while we were eating and told me that I was special (I think due to my eyes). My left eye is blue and my right eye is half blue and half brown at about the 10:20 position. My father has blue eyes and my mother has brown eyes. One of the stories above made me remember this from about 20 years ago. Having different colored eyes is a blessing not a disorder as I have seen quoted on other sites. I am currently studying medicine and am looking forward to delving deeper into this subject in a genetics course. My BS and MS in Biology never really gave me a good explanation. But genetics is an evolving field.

Don't worry, I have two differeny colored eyes too. In fact, they change color also! But, lately my left eye has just been changing to different shades of blue. My right eye has been goiing back and forth from green to brown. It's odd because no one else has it in my family either. My dad's eyes are hazel( and they stay that way, both of them), but my mon's eyes are blue. So are my 3 brothers' and sister's. My friends like to check them every day, to see whet color they change. They say I have mood eyes. Now they say I'm the girl from unborn, and that I have a twin that's gonna get me. Weird Huh????? I talk to much, don't I? My dad says I talk so fast, that I could be an auctioner. Crazy, Huh?!

In response to NaomiKathleen24, That's weird you say that about the "light spots in the hair", because I have the same eye coloration (one blue, the other half blue and half brown exactly) patterning and my cousin on my father's side has a patch of white hair in his blond hair that he has had since he was born. Kind of curious what that "W" word was, I think that may be an explanation to my patterning also.
