“Amang and her beautiful eyes” was recently featured on the official website of National Geographic. Heterochromia iridum is known as a condition where one iris has a different color from the other.  Statistics shows that only 1% of the whole population has it. Amang, a Lumad from Talaingod, Davao del Norte, Philippines, is among them.
