Dh says grey/blue.

I think green.

What colour would you say they are?

Exactly the same colour as mine. I think mine are green but with a dark Bluey grey ring around them

Al2O3 Sat 11-May-19 14:37:14

Hazel green and they will change over time.

IWantMyHatBack Sat 11-May-19 14:38:13

Same as mine and my youngest. Change a lot depending on what I'm wearing grin

(greeny grey blue)

Grey / hazel.
Beautiful whatever colour they are!

MancaroniCheese Sat 11-May-19 14:46:27

Same colour as my DDs. She is 15 and nobody can decide what colour they are as they change from day to day.

Even the Optician couldn't tell us what colour they are grin

puma84 Sat 11-May-19 14:48:55

For those that have the same colour. What do you put on forms when it asks what colour eyes you have?

Her nursery asked on her placement form and I just put green confused

@Ellabella989 that's what I thinks hers are.

If I was filling in a form i’d definitely put green

VaggieMight Sat 11-May-19 14:58:23

Green/blue/grey like mine. If describing my eyes I'll usually just take say they're green. They seem to change though. In sunlight they're very green.

beanaseireann Sat 11-May-19 15:04:40

Green grey

SnarkyGorgon Sat 11-May-19 15:21:52

Exactly like mine! They have all the colours in them, so what I’m wearing makes them appear very different as does what mood I’m in. No one ever answers the same when asked what colour they are. If I’ve been crying they can go a mad luminous aqua!

ThatCurlyGirl Sat 11-May-19 15:31:38

Very similar colour to mine and in some lights mine get almost yellow / amber bits in them.

Mum used to put "in between" or "muddy hazel" on forms where we had to put eye colour 😂

CustardD123 Sat 11-May-19 15:52:50

Looks grey to me but definitely isn't super obvious.

RoseMartha Sat 11-May-19 16:08:37

Green/grey with touch of hazel

Mine are like that! I'm always stumped when people talk about eye colour as it depends what I'm wearing. They are grey today, just checked!

greathat Sat 11-May-19 16:20:27

In fact one day mine went really bright green, no idea why, people told me I looked like something out the xfiles. As a science teacher the lack of logic behind that still annoys me

I’m surprised any form would ask for colour of eyes... why? It’s not been recorded in your passport for years either.

Eye colour can often change over time.... many babies are born with deep blue eyes which eventually change, and sometimes this lasts for years. And adults sometimes wear coloured contacts anyway so recording eye colour just seems a bit pointless

RandomMess Sat 11-May-19 16:45:33

Surely they are hazel because they have brown green and blue in them...

Mine have three rings similar to your DDs less blue with more brown and a hint of green apparently it's an unusual iris pattern according to the optician.

Yabbers Sat 11-May-19 16:53:21

Same as mine. I say they are green/grey, but they go quite blue when I cry.

I can't recall ever being asked my eye colour on a form.

MistyMinge Sat 11-May-19 17:20:31

My eldest DC has similar eyes. They were bright blue until around 18mths. I've been told his are Hazel.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sat 11-May-19 17:22:50


HalfBloodPrincess Sat 11-May-19 17:24:35

My eyes are the same colour as your daughters and I’ve always said Hazel, although the left one has a very distinctive green ring around the pupil.

thaegumathteth Sat 11-May-19 17:24:52

I knew her eyes would be like this before I opened the thread! Ds and I have the same eyes. Both of us had blue eyes until we hit puberty. Weird.
