Re: two different color eyes

Postby Rae09 » Fri Jan 11, 2008 2:35 am

I have two different eye colors as well... It seems from reading all the other replies that the common colors are blue and green. Mine are mostly blue and brown, but they change frequently. My brown one is constantly changing to green, and my blue one to a very light grey. I have never seen any one else with two different colored eyes, much less ones that change. Is this natural or am I just extremely different?

this is probably wrong but...
i was told different features in the body are the result of a reaction being catalysed by an enzyme and different enzymes are denatured at different temperatures. some people have brains that are stronger on one side or the other and this effects the amount of activty that goes on in each side, and that the amount of activty going on relates to its tempertaure. so an enzyme on one side of the head may be denatured/not work as well due to a high/low temperture and so the other enzyme for the other pigment catalyses the reaction, giving the recessive colour. but on the other side of the head it can catalyse a reaction and so the dominant eye colour is produced.

no offense, but that sounds like a stupid hypothesis...

Hi there I have 2 different coloured eyes, the left if blue and the right is green. I have had it all my life.
Most people don’t notice, until you up close, and it seems if I get a little frustrated or upset the left turns brighter blue, or so I’m told.
It really has not bothered me and people often say how strange but unique it is, I reply with will "I could say the same about you" as I don’t know what its like to have the same coloured eyes. It’s a talking point and I must say not one person has thought it freaky. And the girls seemed to love it when I was a kid. Didn’t do me any harm at all.
Look at it this way we are few, unique, and people pay a fortune with contacts these days to achieve the same result we were born with. The down side if there is one is that my left eye is far weaker then my right always has been.
Cheers

Right green eye & left brown eye with a sliver of gold here ~ I was about 1 years old when my eye colors changed and it's been 23 of living with this special trait. My mom's sister has a dark brown eye and light blue eye, as well. I wonder if my niece will have this beautiful trait. Life is truly ironic. My mom use to make fun of her younger sister, calling her a "freak". Then years later, I was born and BAM! My mom produced a dark haired "freak" of her own. I went from being an awkward girl, to a young woman, who now embraces (almost) all aspects of herself and life. PEOPLE GET JEALOUS WHEN THEY SEE SOMETHING SO UNIQUE AND RARE. IT'S TYPICAL FOR MANY TO REACT IN A DEFENSIVE MANNER; WE KNOW BETTER, BECAUSE WE'RE ON OUR TOES. I wonder; will my niece possess this incredible trait?

Hi. My 20 month old son has one brown eye and one blue eye. He was also born with dark hair except for a spot on the top back of his head that was white. His hair has lightened up a lot but the white spot is still there. I am wondering if any of you with two different color eyes also have a spot of hair that is different? I have read about Waardenburg syndrome and he does not have it. Thanks

My roomate has two different colored eyes, she says that her grandma is the only other person that she knows has it in her family. One is Blue and the other is half blue and half brown. I think it is very cool. She thinks its unique and special because its something she shares with her grandmother. But sometimes she has trouble wearing makeup because when she puts eye shadow or eyeliner one is always emphasized more then the other. People don't usually notice, you can see it only if she is wearing makeup or if you look up close.
