The eyes are often the first thing we see when we look at someone. And when you look at them up close, everyones eye color is a kaleidoscope of shapes and hues. How does eye color work? The answer involves some very cool physics, and probably isnt what you were taught in school. And youve probably wondered how is eye color inherited, or why some people have blue eyes even if their parents eyes are brown? Get ready for a long look deep into the genetics and physics of eye color. #eyes #eyecolor #blueeyes
