Different Colored Eyes Day is currently unknown, but it was most likely created by someone with heterochromia iridum. This holiday celebrates heterochromia iridum, also called heterochromia iridis or simply heterochromia, which is a difference in coloration of the iris. In complete heterochromia, one iris is a different color from the second iris. In partial heterochromia or sectoral heterochromia, part of one iris is a different color from the rest of that same iris.
