Mum and son have rare eye condition leaving them with swirled blue and black eyes
A mum has revealed her rare eye condition that she has passed on to her son, meaning both have stunning two-colour swirled eyes.
Elizabeth Tyler and her one-year-old son Liam Mexus have heterochromia iridium, a condition that gives people two different eye colours within one iris.
While Elizabeth, a business owner and influencer, has striking deep blue and black eyes, Liam has one blue eye while his second eye has a tinge of both blue and black colour.
Elizabeth, who said her father and siblings also have the rare condition, wants to inspire positivity about being born different.
“I love my eyes because they are unique. It’s okay to be different,” Elizabeth said.
Elizabeth, from Ohio, in the USA, is often asked about her condition by curious followers as she posts pictures of herself and her children.
While a lot of people call her gorgeous, she also politely imparts knowledge about the condition that could be both genetic and acquired.
She said: “I was often bullied while growing up and they were a normal part of my life but the response from others brought more attention to them.
“My eyes were a common topic of interest when people who were not used to seeing them. But now, (using social media platform), I feel blessed to be able to inspire others who have the same condition and may be uncomfortable with it.”
Elizabeth has five children, but only Liam has inherited her condition.
The mum added: “My son also has Heterochromia Iridum.
“They are different than mine. He has one blue eye and the other in mostly brown with two blue sections.”
