I'm just curious. Do they change color when we die?
Do your eyes change color when you die?

The eyes get "duller" - like, there is literally no life in them at all. I believe that there are nutrients in the body that help to maintain pigment, and obviously when you are dead, nutrients are no longer supplied to cells in the body. Also, the cornea that covers the iris and the pupil absorbs the fluids inside the eyeball so it becomes cloudy, giving the impression that the eyes have changed color.2
I would assume that the gene for eye pigment would cease to be produced, probably resulting in no eye color.1
are you trying to find out if you'll look good for the necrophiliacs?3
I looked at a cadaver or two, the professor didn't say anything about his/her (I went twice, two different bodies) eyes changing color. He just lifted the eyelid and talked about the eye and its color. To me, it looked the same as if someone were alive.1
My grandma told me when her mother died in front of her Its literally like there was a light In her eyes and it turned off !2
They tend to become a pale color over the iris and pupil though the actual color varies.1
does it matter? I don't really think a body's pigment changes when they die...but once the body swells to a certain point, the tiny blood vessels may break and color the entire eye,1
Well after someone dies I thought they took the eyes out1
i think they turn pale and eventually all colors fade1
yeah I think somebody told me that the eye color stays the same but it turns pale and not shining ...but I don't know to what extent this is true !1

It's kinda like that question "If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody there, does it really make a noise?" Who cares?1
nope they turn to jelly!1
I don`t know such, but I know that the splendour is off.1
I don't know. I haven't died yet.1
