The eye color map of europe[edit]

The reason behind the change does not make any sense. Where does the "science-fiction study..." come from? Someones personal blog is not a very reliable source. Also, one of the reasonings behind the change says that on the previous map it included green eye color. Green eye color is considered as a light eye color! And the map clearly stated it shows frequency of light eyes around europe. And now to the best part, this "new" map, also shows frequency of light eyes, including green, so what is the problem? The "new" map is based on a study made around 1930s, im sure you can do better.

Also to all this estonians having 99% blue eyes talk. First of all, blue eyes is often a synonym for light eyes. This 99% hype is just an honest mistake made by the author of the article. The real number is 89% and the fact remains that 89% of estonians have light eyes, blue/green/grey. The number is about the same in Finland. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alfredopatuliano (talkcontribs) 17:33, 24 April 2016 (UTC) What about the number of 'light' eyes in Britain? the percentage of blue eyes in britain is 48% according to article,but what's the number of whole light eyes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nero011 (talkcontribs) 15:38, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

how about some heavy editing nearing re-writing the whole thing?[edit]

the article is messy, incomplete and contains obvious mistakes. anybody feeling like writing it again?. i'm new to this, it shouldn't be me, i don't know if that is even possible...? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:02, 4 May 2016 (UTC)


In once place in the article it says that there are three pigments, including blue, green and brown. In another place in the article, it says there are no blue or green pigments. This is obviously contradictory.

Semi-protected edit request on 2 October 2016[edit] (talk) Asians cant have blue eyes

Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XX with YY" or "Please add ZZ between PP and QQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 11:36, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Spectrum of eye color pictures[edit]

Hi, I have some pictures of eyes with colors not on the spectrum list on the article. I don't have the necessary permission to edit, but if anyone would like to add the pictures, just ask.

Jonahpoke92, what spectrum? If you mean colors such as violet eyes, violet eyes don't exist. The article pretty much mentions this. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 00:26, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
