Blue Man

Agyria is a condition in which a person accumulates silver, silver dust or silver compounds in their body, this can make their skin appear blue in color.  Just like silver is used in photographic paper, in which it darkens when exposed to light, silver particles in the skin will darken when the patient is exposed to sunlight.  Through the skin this creates a bluish appearance.  Argyrosis is when the condition causes changes in the eye.

When it affects the eyes it is referred to as Argyrosis
