Hazel Eyes — Prevalence and Significance

Before we dive into the list of celebrities, it’s important to understand what hazel eyes are. Hazel eyes are a mix of green, brown, and gold colors that create a unique pattern in the iris. The exact combination of colors can vary from person to person, which makes each person’s hazel eyes truly unique.

Approximately 5% of the world’s population is believed to have hazel eyes. They are most common among demographics from Europe and North America. 

People with hazel eyes have just as much melanin in their eyes as brown-eyed people, the only difference is that in hazel eyes, the melanin is mostly concentrated around the edges.
