Thanks I never knew so I thought I’d ask.
Since the entirety of my left eye is blue and most of my right eye is blue, I’ve always just said blue.
Of the actual photos I’ve seen of central heterochromia, I’d go with the outside color, in your case light blue/gray.
But that is really just me. I don’t think they have a special determination for choosing your main eye color. What is on your drivers lisense? I’d go with that.
Just chose whichever you like the best xD
They look something like this, http://www.flickr.com/photos/eva_rousse/2652978814/ , right?
Thanks in advance,

Eye color is determined primarily by the concentration and distribution of melanin pigment within the iris tissues, anything affecting those factors may result in a difference of color being observed.[...] The human iris can be seen in a number of various colors. There are three true colors in the eyes that determine the outward appearance; brown, yellow, and grey. How much of each color an individual has determines the appearance of his or her eye color.[...]
Eyes displaying Central Heterochromia are often referred to as "cat eyes" because of the appearance of a multi-colored iris. Central Heterochromia appears to be prevalent in irides containing low amounts of melanin.[...] Central Heterochromia does not label an eye as hazel. This is because the outer ring of an eye affected by Central Heterochromia is that iris’s true color.
Hazel eyes are due to a combination of a Rayleigh scattering and a more than moderate amount of melanin in the iris’ anterior border layer.[...]
Hazel eyes often appear to shift in color from a light brown to a medium golden-dark green. A number of studies using three-point scales have assigned "hazel" to be the medium-color between the lightest shade of blue and darkest shade of brown.[...] This can sometimes produce a multicolored iris, i.e., an eye that is light brown near the pupil and charcoal or amber/dark green on the outer part of the iris (and vice versa) when observed in sunlight. Hazel is commonly found in Europe, some regions of the Middle East, North America, parts of Central Asia and parts of South Asia.
Definitions of the eye color "hazel" vary: it is sometimes considered to be synonymous with light-brown and gold.[...]
In North America, "hazel" is often used to describe eyes that appear to change color.
Use Google Images and look for both…you will see a difference.
Hazel is brown/green/yellow or gold mix…
CH can be blue eyes with a different color pattern around the pupil….or green eyes with a rust color or brown pattern , usually a starburst around the pupil.
CH can be any color around the pupil that is vastly different from the rest of the eye. Hazel is a mix of colors, but all over the iris.
