Yes, infact It’s actually quite common. Mostly the changes are subtle and cannot be noticed, but sometimes it is quite severe. About 15% of caucasians change eye color at puberty.
So what causes it?
Well it has to do with how the different colors are created in the first place, it’s all to do with the Amount of pigment. Lots of pigment makes your eyes brown, little pigment makes it blue, and the others are in between. But pigment isnt permanent, it decays and is replaced all the time, so it all has to do with decay rate Vs replacement rate, which can be influenced by lots of things such as hormones (hence the puberty changes,) diet, and environment.
so in reality it would actually be rare to have the exact same eye color constantly.

#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy


I’m not black and I find it disgraceful that black barbies are cheaper and harder to find, that you rarely see a black person on the cover of a magazine, and that these prejudices that we pretend are gone are very much alive today. it’s sickening.
