I have read, it depends on the color the baby's eyes will be. If they are meant to have brown eyes, they generally change pretty quickly - by six months of age

If they are meant to have blue eyes, they will generally darken (never lighten) to their true color by 1 year.

If they are meant to have green/hazel eyes, those generally don't arrive until age 2 or even later

My daughters eyes settled on green at around a year. From what I understand, there is more pigmintation in green and brown eye, so if they have turned to green or brown, they are probably going to stay that color. If they are still blue, they are subject to change during the first few years.

I believe they say 6 months also that they will change and stay that color. But my 4 yr old little girl her eyes are blue but turn greenish sometimes then turn back to blue. Everyone is different.

Oh I hope my boy's eyes will stay a gorgeous blue!! He is six months now. :)

A friend's daughter's eyes changed when she was about four, I think. Up until that point they had been a green-grey, but now are closer to blue. Or perhaps the other way 'round. My friend herself has eyes that are constantly changing color.

My daughters eyes turned from blue to green at around 6 months, but I had bright blue eyes up untill I was 2 and then they turned green. So I don't really think there is a definate time.

My parents said my eyes were blue up until somewhere within my first year - they turned green.

My dr told me the same thing as Tam said. If they haven't turned by 6months they most likely wont change.
