How does this happen?

The name for the eye condition is called Complete Heterochromia. It comes from the Greek word heteros, which means different, and Chroma, which means colour.

Heterochromia is caused by variations in the melanin which determines our eye colour, according to All About Vision. When it comes to blue eyes, they have the least amount of melanin in the iris, whereas a brown iris has the most.

The condition is usually considered captivating and a number of celebrities have it too, including Mila Kunis.
