Would you like to know what colour your future child’s eyes will be? Our Baby Eye Colour Calculator tells you within a second. Our Eye Colour Calculator, which is based on the most recent genetic studies, can easily answer your question.
Simply enter the eye colour of both parents, and then click on the “Calculate” button of the Eye Colour Calculator. Then the calculator will tell you what eye colour your future child will most likely have.
Our Eye Colour Calculator uses the results of the most recent genetic studies to predict the eye colour of your future child. Although there are still many open questions concerning this topic, the eye colours of the parents are enough in many cases to predict the eye colour of their future child with high probability.
The following eye colours – listed in the order of their frequency – are possible:
Newborn babies most commonly have blue or bluish-grey eyes. This colour may remain unchanged for half a year or a year, but by the 1st birthday of the baby, eyes will reach their final colour. It may rarely happen that the eye colour remains unchanged up until the 3rd birthday. The Eye Colour Calculator predicts this colour.
The eye colour of a baby is partly determined by the genetic code of the parents – it is basically 1 gene from each parent. Our Eye Colour Calculator uses the most recent studies to calculate with the combinations listed below.
|FATHER’S EYE COLOUR||MOTHER’S EYE COLOUR||BABY’S EYE COLOUR|
|brown||brown||brown (75%), green (18,75%), blue (6,25%)|
|brown||blue||brown (50%), blue (50%)|
|blue||brown||brown (50%), blue (50%)|
|brown||green||brown (50%), green (37,5%), blue (12,5%)|
|green||brown||brown (50%), green (37,5%), blue (12,5%)|
|blue||blue||blue (99%), green (1%)|
|blue||green||blue (50%), green (50%)|
|green||blue||blue (50%), green (50%)|
|green||green||green (75%), blue (24%), brown (1%)|
The picture below provides a clear overview of the genetics of eye colour and explains how genes determine the eye colour of the future child. By the way, based on the characteristics of the parents, not only the colour of the baby’s eyes but also his/her potential blood type can be determined before birth.

Yes, it is. It is caused by the so-called Waardenburg syndrome, a very rare genetic condition. In this case, someone may have two different-coloured eyes. Moreover, sometimes it is possible to have multiple colours, for example green and blue, within one eye. This latter condition is called sectoral heterochromia iridum.
Yes, it is. The easiest solution is provided by contact lenses which refract the light in a way that results in the eye colour you wish to have. There is, however, a more longer-lasting solution, as well. At a clinic in California a surgical procedure was developed that “changes” the colour of eyes from brown to blue. With this procedure a new, artificial iris is created, and an incision is made to place this new iris into the eye. The surgery only takes 15 minutes, and it is reversible.
