That's an... interesting desire.
Actually more people have two different coloured eyes than I'd ever really noticed until one of my best friends did, and I started to keep an "eye" out for it.
What causes it?

Because eye color like skin color is controled by melanin certain medications and syndromes such as Waardenburg syndrome can cause it.

When looking at genes eye color is a polygenic trait. So it could mean that one of the genes may be incorrect to produce two eyes of the same color.
