Your eye color is genetic and depends on the amount of pigment or melanin found in the iris. The distribution of that melanin is also a factor to what color of eyes you have. Light gray and blue eyes contain much less to no pigment or melanin than extremely dark brown eyes. There are many many other shades of eye color in between the two.
Blue Eyes are only about 8 percent of the worlds population. Blue and Grey eyes are categorized usually together because both have little to no melanin covering the iris making them appear in all shades of blue from light blue/gray, medium, to darker blue.
Green Eyes contain much more black and yellow pigment or melanin than blue eyes but not as much as brown or hazel eyes.
Hazel Eyes or Brown-Green are described when eyes contain elements of both green and brown. These eyes appear to change in color based on different lighting and or by wearing different colors of clothes. A lot of people get hazel eyes confused with green eyes.
Light brown eyes or Brown-Yellow, like mine here, contain a large amount of pigment over the iris but not as much as dark brown eyes. They appear golden in most light and have no hazel mixed in.
Dark Brown or Brown-Orange have the most amount of pigment over the iris and can even sometimes appear to be black. Look closer into the eye and you will see shades of orange and copper in certain lighting.
