What Does My Eye Color Say About Me?
It was believed that brown eyes were the dominant eye color. Although brown is the most popular eye color, genetics of eye colors are more complex than that. It is impossible to determine the eye color of a child by looking at their grandparents and parents. We also know that two blue-eyed parents can have a child with brown eyes.
Your eye color is a reflection of how much pigment (melanin), you have in your eyes. Your eyes will get darker if you have more pigment. Green eyes have more melanin than brown eyes and blue eyes have even fewer. Albinism is a term that refers to people who appear to have violet eyes. Their iris are nearly devoid of melanin. This allows them to "see" the blood vessels behind their eyes.
Due to the absence of melanin, people with lighter eyes, such as those of blue, green or grey, are more likely to develop eye cancer called uveal malignant melanoma. Age-related macular damage is also more common in people with these eye colors. Because lighter eyes contain less melanin and less UV light, the iris absorbs less of it. This means that more light can pass through and cause damage .
Your eye color changes from the beginning. Because they have little or no melanin, most babies are born with blue eyes. Eye color develops within the first few days of life. By age three, however, most eyes are fully developed. Eye color can be affected by trauma, disease, age, and some types of eye drops.
Your eye color is unique! Eye color is determined by the amount of melanin in the eye. This means that you don't see "blue" in the eye. Instead, you perceive the lack of pigment as a color. This means that each eye color is unique, just like a fingerprint. A sibling and you may both have blue eyes. However, they might have different amounts or patterns, which could lead to completely different colors. Heterochromia is a condition in which the eyes of a person are different from one another.

Our eyes are the most prominent feature of our faces. People are more likely to recall someone with a distinctive eye color such as a striking blue or unique green. It has lead to stereotypes about personality traits and talents that are based on the color of our eyes. If the eyes truly are the window into the soul, then who is to say that our eyes cannot also provide a key to our personality?
People with brown eyes, which is about 80% of the population, are more trustworthy and more outgoing. While I don't believe the majority of people are trustworthy, it is possible to be seen as more trustworthy if you have darker eyes than your lighter-eyed peers.
Blue eyes are a common theme in pop music. Blue eyes can be heard in pop and classic rock songs such as "Ocean Eyes" from Billie Eilish or "Sweet Kid O' Mine" from Guns N' roses. They are often interpreted as emotional, sentimental, and imaginative. Despite being less common than brown eyes, blue eyes make up over 10% of the world's population.
People with green eyes, one of the most uncommon eye colors, are often viewed as intellectual, mysterious, unpredictable and unpredictable. Although you may have heard of the "green-eyed monster", I believe it is more likely that someone with green eyes was jealous.
Green eye color does not only refer to the color of the pigment, but also how the light scatters it. People with green eyes (or hazel eyes) often say that their "eye color changes" and it's possible they may not have enough.
This brown-green hue, which has flecks of golden, is more striking than other eye colors. Hazel eyes are an amalgamation of many colors and not one. Hazel eyes are often characterized by a darker outer ring and a closer "sunflower", near the pupil. Any combination of these colors could be considered hazel. Hazel eyes are associated with a bright mind and a strong personality.
According to some, grey eyes have a lower pigment level than blue eyes and are therefore more rare. Grey eyes can be quieter, more reserved and more conforming than those with blue eyes. If you will, it's an old soul.
Black eyes don't exist. They are a very dark brown color with a high amount of pigment. Black eyes can be interpreted as being impulsive, hot-tempered and adventurous.
