Can your eyes change color?

Eye Colors

Many people are under the impression that their eye color can change with their mood or the weather. This is impossible. What causes the eye to be a certain color is the type and amount of pigment that is in the iris. This iris pigment is typically permanent by six months of age. The pigment cannot change day to day, just as the pigment in our hair or skin cannot change from day to day. Any day to day variations in eye color are most likely due to differences in light brightness and type of lighting (i.e. sunlight, incandescent, or fluorescent) in the current surroundings.
