“Apart from the stares I really don’t mind having heterochromia, I love my eyes “

Heterochromia Project

A few things off the top of my head are, I work in a shop and I have about 10 customers a day telling me that I’m wearing contact lenses, I tell them that I’m not and they won’t believe me! I also get a lot of people saying to me “do you know your eyes are different colours?” Like they think I have been walking around for 23 years and hadn’t realised! I also have had a few “are you blind in one eye?” Which I find very rude, they think that because my blue eye is a very light blue that I might be blind in that eye, I just respond by saying “no I’m not, I have always had perfect vision in both eyes, it’s called heterochromia, look it up! “.. Another thing I don’t like is when one person notices my eyes and then tells all the people they are with and then I have about 4 people looking at me, it can be quite awkward! Apart from the stares I really don’t mind having heterochromia, I love my eyes now that I’m older, I love being unique!
