-- "Behind Blue Eyes", '''Music/TheWho'''

The color blue in eyes is a recessive genetic trait exclusive. Like most eye and hair colors lighter than black or brown, it is found mostly in Caucasian people. To actually get blue eyes, both parents genetic material must select for it. Thus it is a rare trait, which is why brown and black tend to be more likely in people's eye color. Biologically, blue eyes slightly limit the light absorbed. People with blue eyes see better in the dark (incidentally, blue is more common in the colder regions of the world where there is less light and is a common sight amongst Arctic predators), but environments with harsh light are more likely to inflict eye damage.
