Eye color is one of the most notable attributes that seem to define a person’s appearance (along with hair color and face shape), and it’s largely determined by genetics through inheritance. Eye color is determined by a combination of the pigmentation of the iris, and the scattering of light in the turbid medium in the iris.

Certain eye colors are viewed as more desirable than others, and it’s largely determined by culture and rarity. In mammals, blue eyes specifically are quite rare, although certain regions of the world are predominantly blue-eyed for human eye color. Blue eyes can seem grayish, greenish or even brownish under certain lighting circumstances, as there is no blue pigmentation in the eye itself, it’s due to light scattering that the blue color is created.

Blue eyes have a clear, crisp and refreshing feel to them, and it’s something that photographers love to capture:
