Did you know that only one in five Caucasian adults have blue eyes in the U.S.? However, most people are born blue-eyed. The irises will change colors from blue to brown or hazel during a child’s infancy.
Do you know why? This occurs because there is a certain amount of melanin when a child is born, but the changing melanin levels after birth is what affects the color transition. Melanin is a pigment, the more you have in your eyes, skin and hair, the darker they will be, causing them to reflect more sunlight.
Medium amount of melanin=eyes turn green or hazel
Large amount of melanin=eyes turn brown
