Why Do I See Two Different Colours In Each Eye
Heterochromia: The appearance of the iris (color) of the eye to have two different colors often shows up early in life. Heterochromia ("different color") is usually normal. If this appearance develops in adulthood, it should be evaluated by an eye doctor. If one eye appears "bluer" than the other, the issue may be on the cornea (clear window of the eye).See 1 more doctor answer
Only way to: Determine what is going on with this is to see or examine your eyes. See an ophthalmologist for this.

It depends: If the difference is small, the brain can usually fuse the two images, especially with the help of glasses. When it becomes very large (anisometropia), it becomes more difficult to fuse and can result in amblyopia. Contact lenses tend to be better tolerated in people with large differences than glasses.

Very low chance: While there are no statistics, the chance of a person's two eyes being different colors (heterochromia) is extremely low. More commonly, some people are born with a segment of one iris being a different color from the rest. Also, certain diseases can either increase the brown color (nevus, melanoma) while others can lighten the eye (certain inflammations and glaucomas).See 1 more doctor answer
Eye color: This may be congenital resulting from either horners syndrome or it could be a specific eye problem causing loss of pigment or atrophy of the iris of one eye. If it is aquired then it can be due to iris damage either from inflammation, trauma or surgery. The condition is called heterochromia.See 1 more doctor answer
Not usually: If both eyes are healthy, and the neural connections are intact, both eyes should react similarly to light. A standard test in the ophthalmology clinic involves exposing each eye to a bright light to examine the pupil response. If one pupil does not react properly, that could indicate a problem. If you are noticing differences between your eyes, you should see an ophthalmologist.
Very rare: In humans it is considered a rare occurrence. It is estimated at 0.006% odds. Or roughly 6 in 1000 people. That makes it roughly around 250, 000 people in usa.
Depends: There are some conditions that may lead to different eye color between the two eyes. Even eyes drops and surgery can affect eye color. You should see an eye md for a complete evaluation.
See below: Heterochromia, different colored irides, can be hereditary. It can also be a part of rare syndrome such as waardenburg syndrome (white forelock of hair, hearing defect).
