Two different Eyes colored

Whether a person has blue, green or brown eyes is all determined by how much melanin the iris contains. Heterochromia iridis occurs when the irides of a person’s eyes are two different colors. This may occur due to a genetic anomaly at the time of embryonic growth, it may also develop due to injury or disease. Heterochromia is categorised based on how the colors of the eye are positioned and there are 3 different types:

Partial / sectoral heterochromia occurs when only part of the iris is a different color to the rest of it.

Central heterochromia is when the colour surrounding the pupil is different to that of the iris, with flares of the dominant color radiating from the pupil towards the center of the iris.

Complete heterochromia occurs when the color of one iris is totally different from that of the other eye.
