FOCUS CVISTONby Dr. Mark SkowronWHAT DETERMINES EYE COLOR?Even though our irises can range in color from dark to light brown, green,hazel, gray, and blue, there are actually only two different pigments in our eyes,brown and red. The iris, composed of connective tissue and a thin muscle thatallows it to open and close in response to light, contains cells (melanocytes)that can make two different types of pigment, brown-black "eumelanin" and red"pheomelanin." While dark eyes have the most pigment (particularly brown-blackeumelanin), light blue eyes have the least amount of pigment; however, there is noblue pigment. Blue eyes occur when the white collagen fibers in the connectivetissue in the iris scatter light in a way that makes the iris look blue.Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmeticand prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage anycolor variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses arealso available to transform your eye color.

Eye colors between dark brown and light blue have varying amountsof pigment and areas without any pigment, which leads to the unique colors ofgreen, hazel, and gray.SKOWRON EYE CARE370 N.
