Difference in eye color & discloration in the white areas
My son was born with two different eye colors (one eye is his father's color-med/light brown & the other is the same as mine very dark brown). He also has "spots" on the whites of his eyes (gray & black in coloration). He is now seven years old and is doing well in school. Should there be any concern for the variations in color of his eyes?
Diffierent color eyes is called heterochromia. If can be associated with completely healthy eyes but in rare cases can be associated with serious eye problems. By age 7 they should have come out so likely the eyes are normal. Nevertheless I suggest you take him in for an exam by and Eye MD oph;thalmologist. Ask your pediatrician for a reverral
