The eyes certainly are windows to the soul, and if you know anything about eyes or windows, you know they come in many different tints and colors!

Most commonly, you see brown or blue eyes when you look at the people around you, but some people wind up with really cool and rare eye colors. Here are some of the rarest eye colors and how they happen.

What Determines the Color of Your Eyes?

Many people will argue that the color of your eyes is purely genetic, which for the most part is true. However, there’s still not a lot known about the specific genes that determine a person’s eye color. We do know that rarer eye color genes are recessive, so perhaps it’s just a matter of the right genes coming together to bring forth the phenomena.

What we do know about eye color determination is that it involves two pigments: melanin (brown pigment), and lipochrome (yellow pigment). It also depends on how the iris scatters light. When you see someone with light-blue eyes, it means there is an absence of melanin or brown pigmentation. Conversely, when you see someone with dark-brown eyes, they have an abundance of melanin.

The Rarest Eye Colors and How They Occur

Eye Color
Cause(s)
Heterochromia
Increased or decreased pigmentation in one iris or part of an iris.
Anisocoria
One pupil is larger than the other making one eye look darker.
Red or Pink
Little to no melanin due to albinism.
Violet
Lack of melanin mixed with light reflecting off of red blood vessels.
Grey
Very little melanin with a high amount of collagen in the stroma.
Green
A little melanin, a large amount of lipochrome, and Rayleigh scattering of light.
Amber
A little melanin with a large amount of lipochrome.
Hazel
Melanin concentrated in the outer portion of the iris causing a multicolored appearance that usually ranges from copper to green depending on the light.

So, Which Is the Most Unique?

It's hard to determine exactly which eye color is the rarest, but if you have never seen any of the ones listed below, it’s because they're not common. This list is from the rarest to the more common, and if your eye color is listed, consider yourself a gem.

While it may seem like only a few people have rare eye colors, the truth is that everyone has a unique color to them, just like fingerprints. No two people share the same shape or color of eyes. So even if you have brown eyes, you're eye color is unique!

1. Heterochromia and Anisocoria

Heterochromia and anisocoria are sometimes mistaken for each other. Most people think David Bowie had two different eye colors, when in fact, he had anisocoria.

Heterochromia

Heterochromia is a rare eye condition where a person's irises are different colors. There are three types of heterochromia:

  • Complete Heterochromia: One iris is a completely different color than the other iris.
  • Partial Heterochromia: A spot in an iris is an entirely different color than the rest of the iris due to pigmentation differences.
  • Central Heterochromia: When there is an inner ring that is a different color than the outer area of the iris.

Central heterochromia causes melanin to be  concentrated around the pupil.
Central heterochromia causes melanin to be concentrated around the pupil.

It’s quite an unusual type of eye coloring that some individuals have, and while many people wear contacts to make their eye color more uniform, I think it’s beautiful, and such a rarity should be flaunted!

Anisocoria

Anisocoria is when one pupil is larger than the other pupil. This can make someone look like they have two different eye colors when they do not. Anisocoria can be present at birth, and there is usually only a few millimeters of difference between the two.

Anisocoria can also be a result of nerve palsy or a traumatic eye injury. This can cause a much more significant difference in pupil size making the eye with the dilated pupil look much darker than the eye with the normal pupil.

2. Red, Pink, and Violet Eyes

Red or Pink Eyes

Two major conditions cause a red or pinkish eye color: albinism and blood leaking into the iris. Although albinos tend to have very, very light blue eyes due to a lack of pigment, some forms of albinism can cause eyes to appear red or pink.

Violet Eyes

Oh, what a purplish blue! This color is most often found in people with albinism. It is said that you cannot truly have violet eyes without albinism. Mix a lack of pigment with the red from light reflecting off of blood vessels in the eyes, and you get a beautiful violet!

3. Grey Eyes

Grey eyes can sometimes be mistaken for light blue eyes, and they do occur in much the same way. It is thought that what makes these eyes appear grey rather than blue has to do with the amount of collagen present in the stroma. This interferes with the Rayleigh scattering, causing the light to reflect the color grey rather than blue.

Grey eyes have more collagen in the stroma than blue eyes, which changes the way light scatters and reflects grey rather than blue.

4. Green Eyes

Very little melanin, a burst of lipochrome, and the Rayleigh scattering of light that reflects off the yellow stroma can make for a variety of shades of green. With only two percent of the world’s population having green eyes, it’s definitely rare!

Did You Know?

Only 2% of the world's population has green eyes! Talk about a rarity! Next time you see someone rocking natural greens, let them in on this cool fact.

5. Amber Eyes

This beautiful, golden eye color is often confused with hazel. The difference is that hazel eyes have brown and green in them, while amber eyes are a solid, uniform color. With a little melanin and a whole lot of lipochrome, eyes of this shade almost appear to be glowing! A few different animals have this eye color, but it’s a true rarity in humans.

6. Hazel Eyes

While hazel eyes may seem fairly common, you probably know someone with hazel eyes, they only account for about 5% of the world's population. Hazel eyes have a concentration of melanin on the outside of the iris, giving the eye a multicolored appearance.

Are There Really Black Eyes?

Some people think that having black eyes is one of the rarest eye colors. Have you ever seen someone with eyes that seem black as night? Although they appear black, they are really just a very, very dark brown, which is caused by an abundance of melanin. You may only be able to determine the pupil from the iris when looking at the eye with a bright light!

True black eyes do not exist, rather there are brown eyes so dark that it is hard to distinguish between the pupil and the iris in regular light.

Rarest Hair and Eye Color Combinations

Although there is a lack of research, many sources claim that the rarest hair and eye color combination is blue eyes with red hair.

Did We All Have Brown Eyes?

It is believed that the human race started out having brown eyes, and due to genetic mutations, other colors came about. Perhaps this is why brown is the most common (but no less beautiful)!

Many people who have perfect vision choose to wear contacts just to have a rare eye color. So if you already flaunt one of these colors naturally, consider yourself lucky!

Originally, we all had brown eyes. But a genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a 'switch,' which literally 'turned off' the ability to produce brown eyes.

— Professor Hans Eiberg, Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Copenhagen

Is It Melanoma?

If you have any of these symptoms, check with your doctor as soon as possible.

  • A sensation of flashes or specks of dust in your vision (floaters).
  • A growing dark spot on the iris.
  • A change in the shape of the dark circle (pupil) at the center of your eye.
  • Poor or blurry vision in one eye.
  • A loss of peripheral vision.

Can You Permanently Change Your Eye Color?

There is a way to make your brown eyes blue. A controversial laser surgery can remove the melanin in your eye, resulting in a clearer stroma that allows Rayleigh scattering, so your eyes look blue. Some doctor’s use silicone implants to permanently change eye color. Either way, there are significant risks involved.

There are risks with this permanent change, as there are with most surgeries. One risk is the melanin can potentially cause blockages to the fluid draining from the eye causing excess pressure, or glaucoma. A silicone implant can also create a blockage and increased pressure in the eye causing inflammation and damage to the structures of the eye. Patient’s have been rendered wholly or partially blind as a result of these surgeries.

Doctor’s have reported that many people who want to change their eye color had a friend or sibling who was constantly complimented on their light eye color. In those cases, doctor’s suggest confronting those feelings through therapy rather than undergoing risky surgery.

If you want to change your eye color, your best and safest bet is to be fitted for color contacts by a licensed Ophthalmologist.

Glossary

  • Melanin: A dark brown to black pigment in hair, skin, and the iris of the eye in people and animals.
  • Lipochrome: A fat-soluble pigment that is the natural yellow coloring of butter, egg, yolk, and yellow corn.
  • Rayleigh Scattering: The scattering of light without a change of wavelength. This is what makes the sky look blue, since blue light is scattered more easily than red.

        I have heterochromia. One of my eyes is green and one is hazel with a green ring around it, though if somebody asks I usually just say they're green. When I was little my parents would say that I had magic eyes because they would kind of change color, but they don't anymore.

        One of my eyes is purple and one is grey. They glow in the dark. Whenever the power goes out, I never have to worry. When it is sunny, they burn anything I look at. It is kind of scary... They can also predict the weather. If they go green it will snow, blue means flash-flood, black means meteor shower. My eyes also give me special powers, once a man tried to rob a store while I was in there. I was hungry (when I'm hungry, I can make someone's arm disappear). When I looked at him, his arm disappeared, and the gun fell to the floor. I won the Nobel Peace Prize for that one. This article was great, it taught me a lot about my eyes. I did the math and my eyes are better than your eyes. Chow Roberto.

I really like my eyes, but I find it weird that everyone with blue eyes I’ve met has yellow or brown and I don’t. My father is the only other person i know with eyes like mine.

        I just recently realized I have amber eyes instead of "reddish goldish brown with a black ring" haha. Funny thing is people seem to remember me having green eyes in school. Yesterday a man told me I had "beautiful eyes. They're like sunshine." So apparently your comment about amber eyes looking like they glow is true. I come from a family that mostly has yellow green eyes, so compared to them my sister and I just always though we had brown. Pretty brown, but brown. We didn't even know Amber was an actual eye color until we took DNA tests and it predicted my mother, sister, and I would have amber eyes. We started researching it and realized that they were right. Our eyes are amber. We do have every color in my family though, except red. Green is the majority, then blue, grey, hazel, amber, and 1 brown (who funny enough had blonde hair, when most of the family has black. I'm the odd one with dark mahogany reddish brown hair).

        I have silver/grey eyes. I have noticed that most people have black-lined irises. Mine are dark blue-lined, causing my eyes to look blue-ish in some lighting. Sometimes, when I see my reflection (especially in the dark) I get kind of freaked out because the color of my eyes is very startling and I sometimes wonder if I have a soul. Also, I often get asked what color eyes I have. I always say silver.

        David Bowie actually had the same color eyes, blue.

        “He received a serious injury at school in 1962 when his friend George Underwood punched him in the left eye during a fight over a girl. After a series of operations during a four-month hospitalisation,[18] his doctors determined that the damage could not be fully repaired and Bowie was left with faulty depth perception and a permanently dilated pupil, which gave a false impression of a change in the iris' colour...”.

        I was born with very dark brown eyes but as I became an adult they became green. They change color with my mood (like a mood ring) from Green to blue, brown, grey, even at times from a deep green to an emerald green. My father has brown eyes and my mother has blue eyes. No one in my family (even extended family) has green eyes. I am like a jewel my mother says.

        I have multichroma eyes, green-gray and brown area whith a darkgray juvenile circle which changes color. Sometimes the green ist dark gray nearly black depending on the light.

        My parents have both gray green eyes, also changing color.

        I like those Hazel Eyes and green most.

        My eyes change colour with the weather. one hot days they are brown, but on cooler days, they are green. I know that with time your eyes do eventually change colour, but mine can change within a few minutes. for example when I come out of a cold pool, my eyes are said to be green, whereas when I get out of a hot shower, they are a deep brown. It's kinda weird and my dad has Heterochromia, so it might have something to do with that.

        @Arabella Heterochromia is a a mutation. Not an eye color. There are different types like one eye a different color than the other. Heterochromia can be any combination of eye colors.

        What about sliver/Grey? My parents say i have sliver eyes instead of any of these.. Infact i don't even see the sliver/grey eyes mentioned often, I haven't even seen another person with these type of eyes! My parents have blue and green eyes so this is so strange! -Kyra
