Have you ever wondered how do we get different coloured eyes?? Here's how.,..
Its all about the genetics, Your eyes colour is just the combination of your dad's and your mom's genes and then your eye colour is decided naturally in the process
So what exactly happens with genes?
The genes of Both parents are mixed together at fertilisation, but some genes have a more powerful effect than others. These dominating genes override the others which are called recessive genes. For example if the child has a gene for 'Brown eyes' from one parent and a gene for 'Blue Eyes' from the other, the child will always have "Brown Eyes". This is because the gene for Brown eyes is more powerful than Blue and it dominates the Blue eyes gene
However, two parents with Brown Eyes may have children with Blue Eyes. This means that a child would get the recessive Blue gene from both parent..
Eager know more about Eye colours? You got it...
Brown eyes are the most common eye color in the world with over 55% of the world's population having brown eyes. Brown eyes are typically darker than other eye colors, and they may even appear black in certain individuals.
Most people estimate that around 5-8% of the world's population has hazel colored eyes. Hazel eyes are similar to brown eyes, although they are typically lighter in color and have a multi-colred appearance that varies between copper and green depending on the lighting.
It's estimated that approximately 8% of the world's population has blue eyes.
Blue eyes are genetically recessive, and therefore much less common worldwide.
Green eye color is the rarest color found around the world, and it is estimated that only around 2% of the world's population has green colored eyes. Green eye color is often confused with hazel eye color, yet is entirely separate and distinct.
Silver eye color is also quite rare, although many consider silver eyes to be a variation of blue eye color. Estimated only 2-3% of worlds population have silver eyes.
