What exactly are hazel eyes?

I've heard it different ways and I'm so confused! My grandma said it's when your eyes change colors (which mine do), a friend said it's a golden brown, and someone else said it's when you have more than one color at the same time (which mine usually do).

  • they are typically green eyes with brown in them..
    but aren't limited to that.. some are green and gray/blue (like mine)
    some have green/brown/ and gray/blue
    some have green/yellow
    some are even brown and black
    or brown and blue..
    etc.
    although typically we tend to call eye colors by the more dominate shade (ex. mine are green and gray/blue, but the green is the dominate shade so I typically say green to avoid confusion, and my daughters eyes are a mix of brown, black, and purple (VERY pretty).. but we have them listed as brown.

  • It's usually when you have more than one color in your eyes. Most common is Brown and Green but my hubby, who also has hazel eyes, change color depending on his mood.

  • I have hazel eyes, sometimes you can see more than one color in them, and they look different colors depending on what I'm wearing.

  • My dd has hazel eyes.  They are a combination of green and brown.  The colour of her clothes can really make one shade stand out more than the other.

  • My husband and daughter both have hazel eyes and theirs change colors with their mood. So I think it can be both, when your eyes change colors or when they are more than one color.

  • Myself and my 4 yr old dd have hazel eyes. They start out with dark blue on the outside and then go to green to yellow on the inside. DD has more yellow in her eyes than I do so her eyes look more greenish and mine look more blue. From what I understand it is a mixture of different colors like ours are.

  • Well, not necessarily brown... As in myself and my DD's case, it is actually yellow, or a better description, gold.

  • Ok, so I did a little research... lol From what it sounds hazel eyes are also called "mood" eyes which explains why they do seem to change color. They can range from Blue/Green/Gray to Green/Gold or Brown. Sort of sounds like we might have Mutt Eyes. lol
