How does it work?

Unfortunately, this section is only available in the e-book version of the project.

The coloured part of the eye is called the ‘iris’, which has pigmentation that determines our eye colour. Human eye colour originates with three genes, two of which are well understood. These genes account for the most common colours — green, brown, and blue. Other colours, such as gray, hazel and multiple combinations are not fully understood or explainable at this time.
