Only Two Percent Of People In The World Have This Trait

February 5, 2019

When you think about this fact it’s really wild....only two percent of people in the world have green eyes according to World Atlas. TWO PERCENT! Green eyes are caused by low levels of melanin mixed with a blue shade created by the Rayleigh scattering of reflected light.

While blue eyes are the ones that grab people’s attention the most, only 8%-10% of people in the world have them; brown eyes are the most common, with 79% of the world’s populating having them.

Gray, red/violet and heterochromia (having two different eye colors) each make up less than 1%.
