Eyes Can Change Color Completely, Over Time

The experts say “eye color fully matures in infancy and remains the same for life,” although conceding that “in a small percentage of adults, eye color can naturally become either noticeably darker or lighter with age.

I beg to differ. The color of a person’s eyes can indeed change over time to more than just a lighter or darker shade of the same color.

I know that for a fact because my own eyes changed color completely over time — not once, but twice.

My father was a Louisiana Cajun of predominantly French and Irish descent. He had black eyes. My mother was of French, Dutch and Irish descent. She had blue eyes.

I had hazel eyes as a small boy, and they turned green in my teens and blue in my forties.

How about that?
