Cataracts

Researchers have discovered that people with brown eyes may be more than twice as likely to develop cataracts than their blue-, green-, or hazel-eyed peers.  It's not just those who work outdoors or play in the sun who are at an increased risk. "Those with darker eyes are at greater risk, whether they're sun worshipers or not," says Cumming, a professor of community health at the University of Sydney. One theory is that darker eyes actually increase the risk of cataracts by absorbing light and increasing the temperature of the lens when exposed to the sun -- much like wearing black clothes in the summer. 

 

This does not mean that people with light-colored eyes should let down their guard. The sun's UV rays are linked to a whole host of serious eye diseases, not just cataracts and all people should take precautions, regardless of eye color. It is recommended to always wear sunglasses with UV protection when outdoors, always.
