  • Typically you will know by 1 year, but sometimes they change earlier and sometimes later.

  • My little one's eyes were clear clear blue by about two months. Then they changed again when he was just over a year old. Now he's got the most beautiful blue-green eyes. I have a friend whose son's eyes changed a second time when he was close to two. What you think they're going to be could change another time or two!
