    Yes, the pressure force at the aqueous humor may cause the color change of iris which may change the color of eyes. Once our color of the eyes is changed, we should check out whether there is the problem at the body. Or else, it will not be changed. You'd better go to see the doctor and have a full check at the eyes.


    Actually, you should take corneal arcus as a consideration. Pressure in eye is thoroughly distributed evenly. Extreme pressure on the corneal can cause cloudy, even blindness in eyes. However, it is hard to lead to changing color in iris. Corneal arcus is a lipid-rich, which is associated with alcohol, blood pressure, cigarette smoking, diabetes and age. And corneal arcus can make color in iris much lighter than before.
