What eye color should I put on my license if I have different colors each eye?

What eye color should I put on my license if I have different colors each eye?

Not critical: Eye color is one of those identifiers that cannot be changed so it is part of the license listing of the individual. Is one of your eyes a different color because of a nevus (it will be brown), or due to injury or internal iris disease, or is there truly a difference (rare but possible for instance in a sympathetic nerve disruption due to forceps delivery). Use your best guess of base color. ...Read more

What should I do if my new glasses (which have same curve and prescription as my old ones) blur towards the edges?

See the optician: who dispensed the glasses for evaluation of them. However I suggest wearing the glasses for a week or so (and NOT wearing your old glasses), before you return to the optician. Most problems like this go away with adaptation to the new lenses. ...Read more

My sons eyes have been hurting, weve been to eye dr they say his eyes are fine ( vision wise) he will close one eye or the other throughout the day sometimes getting a headache. Any reason for this?

There : There are many possible causes for the pain and discomfort in your eyes. It is certainly advisable to not wear your contact lenses until your have an answer and all your symptoms have resolved completely. My advice is to seek care from an ophthalmologist in your area. If you have already seen a general ophthalmologist, the next step would be to find a cornea specialist. The american academy of ophthalmology's website has a "find an eye md" feature that can help you: http://www.Aao.Org/find_eyemd.Cfm. ...Read more

Me and my husband have different eye colors, will our baby have both eye colors?

Me and my husband have different eye colors, will our baby have both eye colors?

Probably not: The factors that determine eye color are very complex, but generally darker colors are dominant genetically over lighter colors. Thus, if one parent has brown or dark eyes and the other blue, the baby will probably have brown (it might depend on the grandparent's eye colors as well). Note however that baby's eyes will not usually show their final color until they're older-usually blue at first. ...Read more

What to do if I had my eye exam the other day, and I have one far-sighted eye, and one near-sighted eye. just wondering if anyone else has this condition?

It can happen: It is not that uncommon to have a situation like yours. While most people do have similar prescriptions in each eye, our bodies are not perfectly symmetrical and differences in arm length, etc. are common. Your condition can usually be easily managed with the correct eye glass or contact lens prescription. Laser vision correction surgery could also be an option ...Read more
