Settle an argument - what colour are my eyes?

I think they're grey, my dad thinks they're blue, and in the past they've been described as green. What would you say? (I have sectoral heterochromia in the left one so there is a touch of brown in the mix, just to complicate things)

They look green to me

Based on the photos, I would say green.

Blue. But grey-y blue!

YerAWizardHarry Mon 07-Sep-20 10:23:56

They don't look green at all to me. If anything I would say grey with a hazel tinge around the pupil

Ha! Not much of a consensus here! I don't suppose it matters really, but I was thinking of doing online dating again and I wanted to fill in my profile accurately...

Same as mine. People generally say blue until they look again and notice they are actually grey. I think it’s because they are the same colour as the sea on a cloudy day and everyone knows the sea is blue, except when it isn’t.

Green, but different screens will show slightly different colours unfortunately!

My DH has the eye colour like this. It changes though. Sometimes they look grey, sometime blue, very rarely green. I think it depends on the weather or the colour he's wearing or something else. We usually say they are 'mostly' blue.

@Worldgonecrazy I might just put "the same colour as the sea on a cloudy day" on my profile. It sounds a bit more appealing than plain old grey.

Green, but if you do meet up with someone on OLD and they walk away because your eyes are not the shade of green they thought, you'll have had a lucky escape.

Blue-green smile I have similar eyes but with more green tones, yours are more blue.

Green but not definitive as seen on screen as dependent on screen settings. Possibly looks slightly more green than blue but can pass as both on a screen and even teal.

Grey green on my phone screen - and very pretty!

How pp can see blue is beyond me, perhaps it's the same as those dresses online grin.

But OP, as far as I can see they are green. I've much the same colour, used to get greener when angry, but others call mine brown if not looking directly, I call them mud grin.

Hollyhocksarenotmessy Mon 07-Sep-20 11:09:29

Grey for me. Similar to my sons eyes though, sometimes they look grey and sometimes pale blue

LioneIRichTea Mon 07-Sep-20 11:11:34

Blue grey. Same colour as my DP. His go more grey in the winter and bluer in the summer.

Verite1 Mon 07-Sep-20 11:23:42

Def green. Can’t see how anyone can see anything else to be honest!

EoinMcLovesCakeJumper Mon 07-Sep-20 11:27:59

@WhoWouldHaveThoughtThat very true!
@Craftycorvid thanks, but I really don't like them! Too small and hooded, and barely visible eyelashes!

Looks like bluish grey is the best overall description. It's funny how different people can definitely, adamantly see completely different things, isn't it?
