All The Different Eye Colors
Heterochromia iridis: Can result from developmental/genetic disorders (rare) such as waardenburg syndrome, parry-romberg syndrome, or sturge-weber syndrome or from physical trauma to the eye.

Monitor it: You should have it monitored by an ophthalmologist. The issue is whether you have had it since birth (usually caused by an iris nevus) or if it is a new finding. I suggest always wearing sun glasses for protection. Photos can be performed in the doctors office of the freckle to monitor it. It is usually a benign condition and should only be treated if the freckle changes in size or appearance. ...Read more
Not critical: Eye color is one of those identifiers that cannot be changed so it is part of the license listing of the individual.

Natural variation: Assuming that there is nothing wrong with the eye ( vision ok, no trauma, no redness, no pain) then what you are probably seeing is the natural variation of the iris color which can be patterned, variegated or as in your case sort of an outer ring of a different color than the inner ring. Enjoy the beauty of this as it is not harmful and will not affect eye health. ...Read more
