Celebrities with Heterochromia Iridum

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 N. R. 0 Comments


There is Sectoral or Partial Heterochromia which Kate Bosworth and Dominic Sherwood have. This means that although both eyes have a distinct color, a portion of one iris is a different color from its remainder. The other type of H.I. is Central Heterochromia which Olivia Wilde and Idina Menzel have, and this one means that a color that is different from the iris surrounds or encircles the pupil. The final H.I. type is Complete Heterochromia which Alice Eve and Mila Kunis have and it means that both eyes are two completely different colors. Interesting right?! Continue reading to learn more and see other celebrities who have heterochromia iridis, the list includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Aishwarya Rai, and Josh Henderson!

Heterochromia is a harmless medical condition that refers to the difference in the color of the iris, hair, and skin. Heterochromia Iridum/Iridis (Heterochromia of the eye) may be the result of inherited genes, injury, or disease and is determined by the distribution and concentration of melanin — a pigment which the body naturally produces in the iris. Brown eyes have a high concentration of melanin, green eyes have a smaller amount, and blue eyes have the lowest concentration of melanin out of the three. In some cases the pigment discoloration in the eye may be extremely noticeable and in other cases it may be very subtle depending on the concentration of melanin and the kind of Heterochromia Iridis that the person has. I should point out that more often than not melanin is present either centrally or partially in blue, and green eyes; and even though it isn't common Heterochromia Iridis is present in some brown eyes.
