What Determines Your Eye Colour?

Most of us where born with blue eyes, however within 2 weeks of being born our eye colour tends to change. Most often those deep blue baby eyes turn to a brown colour and that’s why brown eyes are the most common eye colour in the population of the world.

So what makes us have coloured irises? It is all down to the melanin, the more melanin you have in your eyes, the darker your eyes are. If you have no melanin in your iris it will appear pink as seen in cases of albinism.  Melanin is not only in your eyes but also in your skin which determines the colour of your skin, again the more melanin you have in your skin, the darker your skin tone. So why do we have melanin? Melanin protects both our skin and eyes from harmful UV rays.

Blue Eyes – Since most born with deep blue eyes change colour within the two weeks on being born, blue eyes are not the most common. Those who have blue eyes tend to have a low amount of melanin in their eyes.

Brown Eyes – When it comes to genes, brown eyes are by far the most dominant gene and therefore is the most common eye colour to have across the world.

Hazel Eyes – Many may notice that those with hazel eyes don’t seem to have one set eye colour as commonly hazel eyes area mixture of brown, gold and green shades. Depending on the lighting they are in, their eyes may appear more brown, golden or green.

Green Eyes – One of the rarest eye colours, this is because of the recessive gene can be passed through generations before making an appearance in a baby.
