Eye color is a genetic trait that is passed down from your parents. Multiple genes are responsible for determining eye color, with brown being the more dominant color when compared to blue or green. If you are partially colorblind, it can be difficult to truly tell what color your eyes are. In addition, sometimes eye color is hard to determine because it changes subtly in response to the light, the color clothing you are wearing, or other factors. Determining your eye color can be accomplished with a bit of research and with some assistance.

Ask a friend to look at your eyes and tell you what color they appear to be while you are standing in natural light, wearing a white shirt.

Examine a color chart and compare it to your eyes to pick a color that most closely matches the eye color.

Check any medical records on file. Eye color is often included and you can get an official diagnosis regarding your eye color.
