Brothers Are Born With Different-Coloured Eyes And They Look Gorgeous

Much more common in animals – Heterochromia!

A photograph has witnessed two Turkish brothers, born with two different colored-eyes due to a rare condition.

Karem and Mehmet Selman, aged 4 and 11 respectively, each has a blue eye on the right and a brown on the left as a result of a condition known as Heterochromia.

From Bursa in Turkey, the brothers were diagnosed with complete Heterochromia, instead of the central or partial Heterochromia which can result in two colors existing together in an Iris.

Suat Selman, their father told Aksam that he took Mehmet to the doctor after noticing the difference in his eye color, but was told he might be having difficulty with his sight in the future.

Nevertheless, very few individuals have the condition. Much common in animals, it often occurs as a result of a genetic color disorder inherited from parents.

If later on developed when grown, it’s likely as a result of glaucoma, eye trauma or as a result of some types of cancer including neuroblastoma and Melanoma.

Mehmet and Kerem Selman, from Bursa in Turkey, stare into a camera with their blue and brown eyes, caused by a condition known as heterochromia

Mehmet, 11, said he ‘started loving himself’ after the birth of his brother Kerem, 4

The brothers have ‘complete heterochromia’ – in which their eyes are two different colors

Mehmet’s father Suat said he took Mehmet to see a doctor after he was born, but soon realized the 11-year-old was ‘a special child

Very few individuals have the condition

Children like Kerem, who develop heterochromia in infancy, more often than not develop the condition due to inherited genes

Kerem’s right eye is an extremely light, icy blue color, whereas his left is a very dark brown

If later on developed when grown, it’s likely as a result of glaucoma, eye trauma or as a result of some types of cancer including neuroblastoma and Melanoma

Most cases of heterochromia occur sporadically, but it can be the result of a congenital syndrome 

The condition typically occurs in people with no family history of heterochromia

Mehmet’s father Suat was told his son may have difficulty with his vision in the future

Mehmet and Kerem’s parents, Suat and Esra, said they are both ‘lucky’ to have such ‘special children’
