Do you have green eyes?
If so, that means you’re something of a rarity among your fellow humans.
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, only 2% of the world’s population have green eyes.
I was quite shocked to find that out because I have green eyes myself, and I just always assumed that green had to be one of the most common eye colors. Go figure.
Since you now know just how rare green eyes are, you might be wondering what the most common eye color is. Well, that would be brown!
Almost eight out of every ten people on planet earth have brown eyes, making that the most common eye color by far.
Somewhere between 8% and 10% of all humans have blue eyes, the color that seems to be the favorite when people are asked which eye color they like best.
For all but the last few years of human history most folks were forever stuck with the eye color they were born with, but that has changed in recent years thanks to the invention of colored contact lenses.
Once used solely to correct vision problems, contact lenses are now being purchased for a different reason altogether: to change the color of one’s eyes.
Colored contacts are quite popular these days, but I believe I’ll just stick with the eye color the good Lord gave me.
After all, they’ve served me well throughout my lifetime and I’m happy with things just the way they are.
And now, one final thought…
