Perhaps one to follow up,
my eyes are also slightly different, one a little bluish,
the other a little redish  (all relative, since one doesn't 
really know what is normal...).
I think that many people may have that, but just never notice.
I see the phenomenon best under artifical light, such
as a single 60W light bulb, that delivers lots of redish light.
