Heterochromia Iridis

- * Heterochromia Iridis * - Heterochromia (Greek : heteros 'different' + chromia 'color') of the eye. A condition in which the iris (the colored part of the eye) is composed of different colored segments or patches or when the iris of one eye is of a different color than the other. It may involve one or both eyes. There are several causes both natural and from 'outside' sources such as eye drops and environment -

In complete heterochromia, one iris is a different color from the other. In partial,or sectoral, heterochromia, part of one iris is a different color from its remainder.  Eye color of the irises, is determined primarily by the concentration and distribution of melanin. The affected eye may be hyperpigmented (hyperchromic) or hypopigmented (hypochromic). In humans, usually, an excess of melanin indicates hyperplasia of the iris tissues, whereas a lack of melanin indicates hypoplasia.
