Blue eyes, brown eyes...

Discussion in 'Eye-Care' started by Eastward Bound, Nov 15, 2004.

  1. What makes an eyeball appear blue rather than brown? Is one color of
    eye better than another? Can people with darker eyes see more of the
    color spectrum with an understanding of how "optical light" works?

    Are blue eyes prefered over brown???

    No, green is the preferred color as that is what mine are ;-)

    Eye color has nothing to do with color perception, as the light and
    image which is projected onto the retina and processed into "vision"
    goes through the iris pupil (empty space) and the (at least when young)
    clear cornea and clear lens.

    The answer to question, in depth, should be here:

  3. But without any Melanine at all, wouldn't the eyes be clear or white
    instead of blue?

  4. Well thanks for clarifying. Only you didn't have to be so graphic.
    Unlike you, I did not intend to start the day off with images of dead
    people with no melanine in their skin making them appear blue/purple
    in color.

    Well, couldn't you have said it better without being so graphic? I
