Best Answer

I have identical twins. One of my sons has blue eyes and the other has one blue and one blue/brown eye. It's called "sectoral heterchromina", possibly caused by a genetic mutation or virus that occured whilst they were in the womb. So it is possible for monozygotic twins to have different colour eyes. .
