Pigment, lipochrome, eumelanin and eye colour

What is pigment?

Brown eye colour
Pigment is something we all find in the human eyes. The type and amount of pigmentation in the iris determines the colour. There are two types of pigment cells. The first type is called eumelanin and the second one is called pheomelanin (or lipochrome). When you have a lot of eumelanin pigment cells, chances are high you have brown eyes. When your stroma (iris) contains only a small amount of the eumelanin cells, chances are high you will have blue eyes.

Gray eye colour

The gray eye colour is a very unique one. We all know blue and brown eyes. Brown eyes are the most common of all colours known by human kind. Aprox. 90% of all humans have brown eyes. Of course, not all people have the same brown colour. Some eyes are more brown/yellow, other eyes are very dark, almost black.

He starred in the Danish X-factor but he is orignially from the Faroe Islands (T├│rshavn). What were your thoughts?

Eye color and glasses

Sometimes it is really hard to choose, especially when you have a lot of options to choose from. Quite a lot of people have glasses and I know from own experience it's hard to find a nice frame. What a lot of people don't know is that eye color is also very important in selecting a nice frame.
