Why Are Babies Born With Blue Eyes?
You inherit your eye color from your parents, but no matter what the color is now, it may have been blue when you were born. Melanin, the brown pigment molecule that colors your skin, hair, and eyes, hadn’t been fully deposited in the irises of your eyes or darkened by exposure to ultraviolet light. The iris is the colored part of the eye that controls the amount of light that is allowed to enter. Some other animals are born with blue eyes, too, such as kittens.
