Hi, before I begin I'd like to say that I wasn't sure where to post this, and I put it in both places I thought it might if you want to move it or delete this go ahead. Please, if you move it, just tell me where
. I wasn't sure if I should post this here because I'm not sure if it's a medical thing, my imagination, or something else.

Sometimes when I get really mad...and I mean REALLY mad, not just pissed off, or upset. I mean the kind of mad where you've just given up on everything and life and wouldn't care if you died. When you're so lose complete control of yourself and do things you normally would NOT do (I'm sure it's happened at least once to everyone). It happened to me just about a week ago, when alot of things were going wrong and my family was just making it worse. I got really mad/upset (Alot of personal things here that I would rather not mention), lost control...did some things (haha) and was ready to go on a long walk through the desert (I find that cools me down) when I look in the mirror. My eyes were different. They're normally blue. Sort of a dull blue. This time, they were turqoise, and they were BRIGHT. It's only happened to me once or twice before that, years ago. Since then, I thought it was just my childish imagination, or bad memory. That was until it happened again (as mentioned above.)

After the walk, when I was cooled down, I looked in the mirror again. They were back to normal. Does anyone know of anything like this? Does this happen to anyone else? I've heard that if you wear a certain color for a while, your eyes shift to that. Maybe it's something like that?

Can eyes change color

When I was born until when I was about 12 my eyes were hazel, and they would change color all the time. Not crazy colors, but from green to blue to brown and back to hazel. Now my eyes are green. I never knew what caused it. I figured it was the shirt I was wearing or something stupid like that. I always thought that was sort of weird.

My eyes change color all the time, or should I say *appear* to based on the color I'm wearing.

Anyhow.. a change to your blood pressure can do a number on your eyes. If you're angry or scared or excited its feasable for eye color to change. Pay attention to how big your pupils are too. Constriction can make a change appear to show up.

You forgot to mention catagory 2, it could possibly be nothing or no good reason.
I would opt to say its a blood pressure issue. Very interesting article though. Its a shame there isnt too much info on this phenomenom.

I have dark brown eyes with little bits of green, and ever since was a child (my mom told me about it) they have fluctuated in color. If I was happy, they were alwyas lighter, however, when I would get upset, they would show much more green. When I was very angry, they turn very dark brown, almost black. This is something that has been commented on by girlfriends and family memebers. I do believe it could be assoc with blood pressure, or is it truly a natural way to show your feelings.

When I was a kid I was the perfect Aryan child, blue eyes blonde hair and german surname (im not a nazi by the way, i hate them). AsI grew up my eyes turned dark brown, my hair black. That's weird cos i was blonde right up into elementary school.

This is more of a medical thing, defiantly nothing paranormal...but physiological. Aaaaaanyway I know many people who have color change when they get mad........I think it's sorta common, at least around those I know it is.

Maybe it was due to the amount of blood being pumped into them?

My sister was born with bright green eyes, but they turned hazel when she was about 10. This is normal though. Apparently babies are born with bluish eyes, which don't set on a fixed colour until they are a few days/weeks old.

Mine change from hazel to bright green or hazel to a light grey depending on my mood.My mother's do as well.Do you know if anyone else in your family's eyes have done this?

If it only happens when your mad then people will know to leave to alone

My eyes change different shades of blue depending on my mood, nothing as extravagent as yours. Normally theyre 'baby blue' but if im in a mood
they turn dark dark blue, but if im overly happy to the point of crying with joyness they're a light light blue. I think its kinda cool!!! if its a horrible disease like SMR said then i like it

my eyes seem to change too, sometimes they look quite brown, and others bright green, or somewhere inbetween the two. Not a major change. I always thought it was that when your pupils are small the iris colour is stretched making it a bit thinner, thus differing from when the pupils are wide open and the iris is compressed. but im no Docter Opticleese

Yeah, I bet it is just from stress. It's kinda cool though, I never knew that happened
. I did a little experiment this morning haha. I have that listerine mouth wash that I use in the morning. Well, that stuff burns like all hell, plus I have sores in my mouth from braces. Anyway, I took some in, and when it was hurting the worst, I looked in the mirror, and sure enough, my eyes were green haha. Kinda cool though.

Sorry, but I have a different view on this. I feel that it is both paranormal and physiological. The problem with most paranormal researchers is that they subconciously think that the paranormal and the normal worlds are separate. The truth is that they are intertwined. One can affect the other as easily as two objects in the "normal"world do. There is no boundry between the two but the ones in our minds.

Everyone has some psionic energy in them, however little.
It is possible your eye color changing incidences are the physical manifestation of your anger brought out by your energy. Basically, you are subconciously willing your eyes to change color.

My eyes goe from dark grey to green to blue, depending on mood. They've always done that, since I was a kid. Mood/Blood pressure/environment?

My brother has eyes that seem to change with his emotion but they are kind of an ocean blue/green so they appear different colors depending on what he is wearing. My theory on his mood changing his eye color is that it has to do with the color of his face changing when he gets mad that makes his eyes appear different.

Someone mentioned about babies being born with blue eyes and then changing soon after birth (maybe it was Becs?). It's true that most caucasion babies are born with blue eyes and they turn to their permanent color shortly after birth but sometimes it takes 2 years before you even have an inkling that they will change.. My second born had almost violet blue eyes until she was 22 months and then they started changing to a greenish brown. At 26 months it was obvious that her eyes would be hazel. It was really strange to get used to seeing her with hazel eyes after having such a deep blue eye color for almost 2 years!

Eye colors have always fascinated me. Glad this topic was started!

Ok first off - yes eyes change colors in babies. Eye color is determined by how much melanin is present, and as babies grow these levels can change. Many are born with a grey color, and then develop into blue, brown, hazel, etc.

Eye color is determined by the amount of melanin, a dark brown pigment, present in your irises. Blue eyes are due to a lack of melanin, while brown eyes indicate melanin-rich irises. Thus, people with darker hair and skin have higher levels of melanin and tend to have brown eyes, while people with lighter hair and skin have lower levels of melanin and usually have lighter colored eyes. This is also why many babies are born with blue eyes. Their eyes change color later as they begin to produce more melanin.

As for why they can change color with mood - I mentioned my guess about blood pressure above, and also ever watch what happens to peoples' skin when they get angry or upset? Blood often rushes to the surface and capillaries pump full with blood causing the skin to redden. The same thing can happen with the capillaries in the iris. The more blood and more red you have present in the iris, the more the color will appear to change.

Or, perhaps you're a dragon! OOOOhhhh!

The most common Earth eye seen in dragons is the simple eye. ...... In dragons, it can be an even greater variety, or change color depending on the breed of dragon. Many dragons have eyes that change color with mood.

I'm one of those with color changing eyes. I don't know if its mood or what but I've had people call them hazel, blue, green, and grey. Not sure what causes different people to see them differently

I also have flip-flop eyes. LOL Most the time hazel. Its changes shades of green, dark to bright.

I love snakes, It because of my eyes, When I was little I seen a "snake skin" pattern to them. It still remains.
