Hi Doctor. I will do my best to summarize. I was born with a birthmark in my right eye where the 'white' of my eye is dark grey/purple thus causing one eye color to be darker than the other. I have never had a vision problem. However, part of my face, eye lid, and under my eye are discolored. It looks like a huge bruise. I was also in a bad car accident where I was passenger and a car t-boned us hitting my side primarily (right side) causing a major head injury. That was 10 years ago and I was very lucky. With the right amount of make-up no one would know but it takes time to cover up. It gradually got worse and am not sure if it's due to birthmark or head injury. I guess my questions are:
* Do you know what the birthmark is called (maybe a strand of heterochromia?)
*When skin is so discolored, are there any procdures that can lighten or fix it? Esp around such a delicate area? It's heavily discolored ...
I am in good health and get compliments on my looks all the time. If I didn't have make-up... I would be looked at like a freak perhaps.
