  • My oldest was born with dark brown eyes and they never changed. My youngest was born with dark blue/gray eyes and they changed back and froth from blue to green to brown and back to blue and so on until she was almost two and now they are brown.

  • my pediatrician told me 18 months. but ive heard 9 months and 15 months, so im not really sure. my oldest two had slate eyes at birth and changed to blue in infancy and stayed blue. but my youngest had dark eyes at birth and they've changed to all kinds of colors during infancy and now at 12 months i dont even know what color they are! i think they're trying to turn brown but havent decided yet.. lol

  • Yes. By 18 months. Of course, as you age your eyes can continue to change in color. Mine were dark brown for many years. As I got into my late teens they started to get lighter and turn green.

  • Everything I read on this says they can continue to change up until the age of 2. Some say even after that some kids eyes change, but for the most part the color they are at 2 is what they will be.

  • My child's eye color changed from bright blue to green at age 3 or 4.

  • I was told that if they are going to change color, it will probably happen within the first 6 months-1 year. My son's eyes were deep blue when he was born, changed to a real bright blue, and now he is 18 months and they are like a grayish blue.
