The creativity of author, deer and publisher Ben Arogundade. According to science there are two ways this can happen.
By Ben Arogundade. Many think that Asians with blue or green colored eyes are wearing contact lenses. In fact, people of Asian ancestry, such as the Chinese children shown here, can have naturally blue, green or hazel eyes, due to a gene mutation or via parents with European ancestry on both sides who carry the gene for the particular color. But in a report by a team from Copenhagen University traced all blue-eyed people back to one ancestor who lived approximately 8, years ago near the northwest regions of the Black Sea.
The gene does not create a blue iris, but rather, it turns off the mechanism that produces brown melanin pigment. Many believe that the blue-eyed gene, or indeed those for green eyes, only occurs naturally in Europeans, and that people of East Asian heritage with these eye colors are wearing color contact lenses.
The total of search queries about Asians with blue or green eyes amounts to over 50, per year. Contrary to what many believe, blue and green eye colors do occur naturally in people of Chinese and East Asian ancestry.
As mentioned, gene mutation is one cause; the other occurs when a person of Asian ethnicity possesses Caucasian ancestry on both sides of their family who are carriers of the gene for that particular eye color. For example, a Chinese or Asian couple with brown eyes could conceive with naturally blue or green colored eyes, so long as the gene for this eye colour exists somewhere within the ancestral line of both parents. Fashion model and TV presenter Alexa Chung and actress Kristin Kruek, are of European and Chinese ancestry, and possess blue and green eyes respectively.

Chung's blue eyes, and Kruek's green are the result of European ancestry on both sides of their respective families. Stats include global totals for laptop and desktop computers and mobile devices.
