In medicine, blue sclera can be the sign of a serious medical condition.
The most well-known is osteogenesis imperfecta - a genetic disease in which the bones are brittle and break very easily. Kids have a horrible life because of this. A very superficial example is in m night shyamalan's unbreakable.
