I was reading an old column describing the occurances on heterochromia and hypo/hyperchromia. I have a pair unusual samples that seem to provide even more peculiar and unexplained info. Now Cecil basically responded to the question by defining the described conditions and saying very little is know about how and why they change. Please tackle this question.
My mother seems to fall into a different catagory that i’d like to hear explained. She has green eyes accept her left eye is half brown. The left eye is bisected exactly through the center at about a 10 degree angle off horizontal. This seems to defy all the example Cece explained and is really strange looking. How can this occur and why is it so clearly defined. FYI none of her sisters and parents have this, and she recalls no trauma.
My eyes change color both ways. I was born with hazel eyes, but in the last 6 years or so they have been quite inconsistant. They change actively and can be anywhere from blue to dark green. I can find no rhyme or reason. My ex-girlfriend calls them mood eyes. Its like they change to match my clothes although this is not likely. I wonder if they change to reflect my surroundings or what. Is it possible that the causes of hypo/hyperchromia can flip flop or are they exclusively progressive and permanent? what cn you make of this one? I am adopted so there is no correlation between my and my mothers conditions.
The facts expressed here belong to everybody, the opinions to me. The distinction is
yours to draw…
