The Truth About Gray Eyes

Gray Eyes Confuse Scientists

We generally know that
the eye color depends on levels of melanin in the eyes. Essentially the more
you have the darker is the pigmentation of your eyes. So brown eyes have a lot
of pigmentation and lighter colors like hazel, green and blue have varying
amounts but less than brown so when the light hits the eyes it bends in a
specific way and produces those shades. When it comes to gray eyes, it is
speculated that light gray eyes barely have any pigment in them at all and the
dark gray have more pigment in the front layer of the iris which produces the
cloudy gray look. It’s also said that a lot of babies are born with gray eyes,
and then the pigmentation increases over time and they get their true eye color.

Gray Eyes Need More Protection

As we’ve mentioned the
eye color depends on levels of melanin in your eyes, and the more you have the
more protected you are from the sun. That’s how it works with our skin and it’s
the same with our eyes. Having gray eyes is like having super pale skin, you
need to protect it from the sun more, so people with gray eyes are encouraged
to wear UV-protected sunglasses more. Gray eyes are also more likely to develop
cancer, specifically melanoma of the uvea.
