Not really: You could consider colored contacts - that would be the easiest way. Certain medications like Lumigan (or latisse) have a side effect of turning your light colored iris dark, so theoretically that could lessen the color difference. Personally, i'd go with the contacts.

Colored contact: If the difference bothers you, you should be fit with a colored contact to make your eye match in color.
