What to do if I have 2 different colors in one 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.

Note however that baby's eyes will not usually show their final color until they're older-usually blue at first. ...Read more
