When people asked me that I have hazel color contact lenses in my shop. Basically, I am familiar with dark-brown eye color. I don’t know what hazel color look like. Hopefully, after searching out about eye colors I can suggest people when I ask me about hazel eyes again.
According to General Eye Care, 2010., iris which is a part of eye with pigmentation, are classified as being one of six colors: amber, blue, brown, gray, green, hazel, or red. Often confused with hazel eyes, amber eyes tend to be a solid golden or copper color without flecks of blue or green typical of hazel eyes.
Firstly, blue eyes have a low level of pigment present in the iris. Recently, scientists announced that everyone with blue eyes is related! Because of various racial groups intermarrying, blue eyes, which are generally recessive, are becoming rarer and rarer.
Brown is the most common eye color. Individuals with brown eyes have more melanin present, and over half of the people in the world have brown eyes.
Gray eyes may be called “blue” at first glance, but they tend to have flecks of gold and brown. And they may appear to “change color” from gray to blue to green depending on clothing, lighting, and mood (which may change the size of the pupil, compressing the colors of the iris).
Green is the least common eye color, but it is found most frequently in northern and central Europe. I have always incorrectly called this color eye hazel!
Hazel eyes mostly consist of shades of brown and green. Much like gray eyes, hazel eyes may appear to “change color” from green to light brown to gold. Individuals whose eyes appear to be one color closest to the pupil, another color a little farther out, and another color around the edge of the iris are likely to have hazel eyes.
Red eyes do exist. “Red?” you say. “Yes, red,” I say, although we often call them pink. Picture white bunnies with pink eyes. What you’re actually seeing in these rabbits and in albinos is the blood vessels behind the iris. Because there is so little melanin in the eyes, there is nothing to conceal the blood vessels hard at work.
I found that it’s difficult still to classify green and hazel. But, I would say that Cherry yellow is the closest to hazel eye color.
Do you think that I am correct about Cherry yellow? Kindly give comment below:)
