I have blue/green eyes, and around each pupil there is light brown. In addition, the upper section of my right iris is dark brown. I was not born with this difference in color; it was found around age 2-3. My mother was told it was a birthmark (Iris Nevi), however, in my research of this, I came across Sectoral Heterochromia as a possible cause. To my knowledge, no other family members have this, so I can't imagine it is hereditary. Neither the color around my pupils nor the section in my right eye has changed in color/size over the years. And although the rest of my irises change color from blueish to greenish to grayish depending on what I wear, the brown sections remain the same shade. I am curious as to how to tell which condition it could be considering it sounds like it could be both. https://app.box.com/s/nx59uwexhjeikdd101xiView Thread
