Re: two different color eyes

Hello everyone. There is at least a person in Romania. Me. My left eye is a green-blue, with brown spots, while the right one has more brown spilled on most of the surface. I am in my thirties and tired of everyone stopping me while talking, ironically smiling and saying to me things like:

"Wait a minute. Look at me. Wow. Your eyes are different color" (like I don't know it) "Have they always been like this, because I never noticed" and jokes like "Wow, you are paranormal", "You make me dizzy, I don't know which eye to look at" etc. etc.

I don't know why (my father had brown eyes, my mother has them green-blue, my brother has brown eyes, everyone else: grandparents, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews I know have no difference). Frankly, I don't even care why. I don't know why people I meet care so much about it.

i have one brown eye one green eye, my dads cousin is the same and my niece has two different colored eyes as well... i am no scientist but i have strong reasons to believe it is in fact hereditary... i don't know why any of you have been ashamed of your eyes sure there has been awkward moments because of my eyes but its what makes us special... i love looking at my dads cousin and nieces eyes. i am so proud to be one of the few people blessed with such an amazing trait may it be a mutation or not.... i personally dont care! they are a part of me and i am proud of who i am... but i do love the "wow you have two different color eyes" almost the same reaction every time its priceless (unless im in a bad mood)

My son has two different coloured eyes, one bule and one green. Have attached a pic.

A photographer pointed it out to us when he was about 9 months.

Have been looking on the net for stats fo ages and found it's 1 : 250,000 . Not sure if that's right or not, seems too rare. Would love to know if anyone has the stats!?!?! Also, from all the forums I've looked at there's no more than 50 people.

He has no learning difficulties, is auctually very clever :)

I have dark blue eyes, my husband has bright blue eyes. My family has no history of different colored eyes. My family has approx 70% blue eyes, 15% brown and 15% green.

My husbands family does have STRANGE HAIR GENES.. Passed down from his mothers side is different coloured hair on the one person eg. my husband has a bright red beard, blond hair and dark brown chest hair and his.. red also.. Like a rainbow, lol!! Not sure if this is connected to the different coloured eyes??

Why should he have problems with learning just beceause of different color eyes? That's like Hitler's blond blue-eyed people regarded as superior human

The color of hair as either nothing to do with eye color.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I actually too, have this. I will post attached pic. My eyes aren't completely different, but my left eye has a stripe down it almost like a cateye. I searched for movie with girl with different colored eye and twin, only because a girl exclaimed "YOU ARE LIKE THAT GIRL IN THAT MOVIE!" okay? lol
But thought I would give it a gander, it is just your basic heterochromia. All my family members have hazel/green eyes and they are variations of colors of hazel and green within their eyes, but mine just happened to be different! :D :lol:

This is what almost everyone in my family has, I just ended up with the stripe too! Don't know quite why but whatever!

I have a twist for you. My eyes have never matched but I can not say what color they really are.
The thing is my eyes change color depending on the environment I am in and what clothing I am wearing.
If I am outside on a bright sunny day I might have one eye that is mostly blue and one that is mostly green. If it is cloudy or I am inside I might have one that is almost brown and one that is a darker green. If I wear blue they both lighten up but still are different.
I asked my eye doctor about it and was told that I have some clear pigmentation in my eyes that reflect my surroundings.
The line "Did you know your eyes are different colors?" should always be answered with a surprised look and a "No Way!! Where's a mirror? I don't believe you!"
Enjoy what nature gave you, it makes you unique and as another poster said, no one will ever forget you.

I am 15 years old and my left eye is split straight down the middle and is half brown and half blue. My right eye is just blue but sometimes looks more green. I have had glasses ever since 1st grade and my eye site get's worse and worse every few months it seems. Nobody else in my family has this, but my mother has hazel eyes with a freckle on it. My dad has the same color blue that's in my eyes. Whenever i meet someone the first thing they usually say is " wow did you know that your eye is half brown?!" It kind of get's annoying sometimes but it's also kind of funny in a way. I can tell that when I talk to people, even the people I've known my entire life, they look at my eye. I didn't know that so many people had the same thing that I did. I've never met anyone that had two different colored eyes. I attached a picture of my eye.

No, It does not connect with my iris. If my pupils are contracted you can see where the splotch ends, not connected with my iris so it's sectoral heterochromia! =))
