About This Quiz

Genetics determine our eye color. While everyone's iris is black, the color around the iris changes. It is determined by the amount of melanin in the iris. If you have brown eyes, you have a large amount of melanin in your iris. Those with blue eyes have much less. 

While most people have the same eye color in both eyes, some people have heterochromia, which is when each eye expresses a different color. This is rare and so are many eye colors. Hollywood may favor blue eyes, but less than ten percent of the world's population naturally has them. 

In fact, more than half the population has brown eyes. If you have blue, hazel, gray, amber, or green, you're not quite a unicorn, but you can count yourself among a small group of people who naturally have those eye colors. Of course, you can change your eye color with colored contacts.

The following sentence explains how you can literally change your eye color. However, to the naked eye, some eye colors appear to change. Do you find blue eyes appear bluer when their owner is wearing a blue shirt? Or that hazel eyes seem to change color depending on the lighting?
