My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I love writing articles about what makes each of us unique and rare.

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!

Rarest and Most Beautiful Eye Colors in the World

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.

      Due to having a completely different combination of hair, eye, and skin colour than both parents, people have asked if I am really their daughter. Dad has the darkest brown eyes with black hair and a tan skin, while mum has blue eyes with flaming red hair and a peachy skin, but I have emerald green eyes with fair blond hair and a white skin. On one occasion our family was at the seaside on the beach overlooking the ocean, and a gentleman and lady couple said "she looks just like a little mermaid" but that's probably with the addition of having this long wavy hair. Genes are really interesting though, and this article was a nice read at helping us understand about how pigment occurs and what makes it happen. It was enlightening to know about lipochrome and rayleigh scattering too!

      Interesting...?

      Oddly enough, I’ve met more people with green eyes than blue. So I get it’s “rarer” but you also shouldn’t tell people with these rare eye colors to consider themselves a “gem”. It gives them a mentality they shouldn’t have and sometimes you can make people think they’re better than others.

      I only have the ‘simple’ eye color, brown, and honestly, I couldn’t care less about my own eye color. But I do care what you are telling other people— anyway... if no two eye pairs are the same... doesn’t that make all our eyes unique? Doesn’t that mean that everyone should consider themselves a “gem” in their own way.

      Now, don’t get mad at me... you’re the one that said it.

      Technically, the shade of a color can change what it is referred to as. However, we only perceive color because of light. So in the end we are thinking we are better than others (in terms of eye color) because of the light?

      I swear, I think I’m just the “”rare eye color” magnet” though because I’ve met people with gray eyes, violet, green, blue, brown, and pink.

      Seriously though, don’t instill ideas that just because someone has a certain eye color that that makes them better (I get it’s just facts but next time, stick to facts, stay away from personal opinion)

      BTW: most people with gray eyes tend to need glasses and have incredibly sensitive eyes when it comes to light. Trust me, sometimes these rarer eye colors that make you a “gem” aren’t all that great.

      “MYKIA” even if you have brown eyes does not mean you are common, it means that you have different strengths and weaknesses than all the others around you. And if you did have black eyes then you would have a really rare eye color. Actually nobody in the world has the exact same color as someone else in the world. Everybody show ups consider themselves special because of this.

      Is it possible to have multiple eye colors??

      I have grey eyes! I’ve been told that sometimes they will be more green than blue. Also if I get really upset/mad they have turned black/dark brown.

      So again is it possible?

      My mother has hazel eyes and my father has bright blue/grey eyes. I have dark green around the edge of my eye, amber near the black part, and bright blue/grey inbetween. Guess I got some of everything :)

      I think my eyes are pretty unique because on the outside its dark green then it goes lighter as it goes towards my pupil but all around my pupil is brown. Also my eyes change color and its really weird some days its just pure brown then it goes back to amber/green :)

      I have very weird eyes. They seem to be grey at a distance, but part of them, as in, half of each of my eyes is brighter than the other, part almost blue, part grey. Also, the very top of my iris is orange. Both eyes exhibit this. Is this normal?

      My eyes get an orangish circle around the iris when I'm happy and get a dark green when I cry. It's so weird, is this normal? I know the crying thing is normal, but what about the orange when I'm happy?

      My eyes are very different considering that when I was a baby I had deep ocean blue eyes. This changed when I went to NSW (Australia) and had a swim in the ocean. My eyes changed to light blue with a golden green ring in the middle. When I cry they turn green. I always get compliments for my eyes. The black ring around my eye also changed and became bigger...

      You know ive never really read to much into this but i will say that i have 5 children and their eye colors are literally all very different from the other. My older 4 by the same father is qreen, amber, clear blue, and dark blue or grey and then my youngest has hazel. Now my eyes can be solid green one day and then look like they are green on the inside and blue the outside the very next. Im a little confused when i read the story of how light blue eyed humans are tracked down to only have one ancestor. My brother had blue eyes and my grandmother as well but no one else and we have a good size family. So how did she get her eyes if the father nor i have solid light blue eyes and why are all my children differently colored. I tend to think that this was God blessing me with a beautiful varity of eye colors, and skin colors, as well as hair colors. I am german but with very blonde hair and olive skin while father is spanish with clear brown eyes and therefore many people are amazed of how different my kids look in all the skin colors and eye colors from eachother yet they all look strongly alike in every other facial detail. Its simply amazing and gods work at art.

      My eyes are odd. People will come up & say odd things about them. I've had strangers say I'm descended from a pharoa, aliens, or have magic powers, ha ha. One nut even asked if I was a werewolf. It didnt help that I used to have four very long canines that looked like dracula (thankfully they slowly broke off & aren't crazily long anymore. Anyways my eyes are sea blue with large yellow stars. The odd thing is they seem to collect extra sunlight. Bright light bothers me. But at night, when its near completely dark, people around me will need flaslights, but I can see to walk. I used to hunt really good at night growing up. I could walk thru the woods at night without a light. Another oddity; some people have freaked out, claiming my eyes glowed at night like an owls or cat or something. One man said you've got predator eyes, like a lion. Haha. Oddly; I am descended from an ancient line of kings. My Grandpa said we were ancient warrior kings, & that we hunted our enemies at night. Makes sense. Night vision before night vision. All I know is they are a pain in the butt on sunny days, & I'm glad my kids didn't inherit them.

      im so glad I found out why my eyes have two different colors around the iris, and I just did! I found out I have central Heterochromia, and my eyes are a little amber around the iris and vibrant green all around. I’m guessing that’s as rare as eye color gets??
