    I have heterochromia.

    I was born with blue eyes and they change a few months later. I know have one brown eye and one "blue" eye (It changes from grey to dark green). With my brown eye, I have a birthmark that circles my iris. Always looks like I've been punched out (people say)

    Annoyed

    First off, I'm not annoyed that I have it. I really do love my eye color and I love how unique it is. What I don't like about it is when someone asks me to describe my eye color ( like on a drivers license or something ) I have to pick one of the following that they list. I...

    WOW!
