They say the eyes are the windows into the soul. They are also one of the first things we notice about a person and what can draw us to them.

The eyes are considered to be the most attractive facial feature. Each person's eyes are incredibly unique, including their eye colour, shape and appearance. Multiple genes affect eye colour as it is an inherited trait.

The coloured part of the eye is called the iris and controls pupil size. A unique combination and concentration of pigments in the iris contributes to the colour of the eye. No two people will share the same eye colour, shape or appearance.

With that in mind, choosing a favourite eye colour can be challenging.

What is the most common eye colour in the UK?

Blue is now the most common eye colour in the UK. While brown eyes are the most common eye colour in the world. According to the 2019 literature review on eye and hair colour, the below data represents the percentage of people with various eye colours.

  • Daily Mail shared an interesting fact, “All eyes in the country were once brown, but now they are 48% blue”.

What eye colours see the best?

Although, the colour of the eye does not determine the vision quality it can impact the visual comfort of an individual. People with brown eyes have a pigment called melanin in their irises. Brown eyes are said to have the highest amount of melanin, meaning that they are better protected from the sun compared to other eye colours. Brown eyes also have quicker reaction times as they absorb more light (myvision.org)

Best Eye Colour


While blue eyes tend to have a natural sparkle to them, brown eyes are the most common eye colour worldwide. Did you know over 50% of people across the globe have brown eyes?


Hazel eyes are second in terms of having the most melanin, however, their eye is most pigmented around the edge of the iris with a combination of gold, brown and green filling the centre. Hazel eyes have also been voted as one of the most attractive eye colours.


Green eyes are incredibly rare, which may be the reason why some believe this to be the most attractive eye colour.


Grey eyes are also a unique eye colour. There are different variations of grey eyes such as blue-grey or silver-grey. Both are considered to be alluring due to the mysterious effect caused by the composition of the stroma. This causes light to disperse differently, creating a silvery hue.


Amber eyes rarely come into discussion as they are also less common, along with blue or green eyes. Amber eyes are also described as golden and can come in light or dark shades, featuring a yellow copper tint with green-hazel and brown tints.

No matter what coloured eyes you have, you should wear UV-protective sunglasses outside to reduce your chances of developing eye conditions such as eye melanoma.
