Resolved Question

Changing of eye colors on dying.

I noticed the color of my dads eyes changed from brown to blue in the last few hours prior to his death. Is this normal and what causes the iris colors to change?.

I was privileged to be with my dad for the last four hours on Tuesday from 14h00 until 16h10 when I turned of the oxygen as it was no longer required. We locked eyes for a long time and I noticed that his eye color changed. I will post a more detailed report on my blog and supply a link to it.

Thanks for condolenses. More details on my blog http://letterdash.com/leostargazer/On-death-and-dying . Not to much heavy stuff and perhaps just perhaps...it may help others as well? Love :-)

In afrikaans they say "die oe breek", that is an indication that death is imminent and I have seen it when my aunt passed away. I also heard the last "breath", I think it happens when death is very slow -i.e. the heart is beating, but there is basically no blood being pumped and no circulation. My aunts circulation stopped a couple of hours before she passed away. I am really sorry about your dad, but at least you were there.

I was with my Dad until a about 20 minutes before he died..nothing changed before that time..he had green eyes. Sorry to hear about your experience..but later on..you will be glad that you were there so close to his departure from this world. It gives me great relief to know l was there....and knowing that l took a flight from UK 4 days before..(and he wasn't expected to die.) I would have hated myself if l had been enjoying myself in Uk whilst my father had died before we 'chatted about things'. I hope all your memories will soon become good ones.

My Aunt was with my Uncle when he died. A few minutes before his death, his eyes started going blue & a few minutes after that (The moment of death) his eyes went white. Very scare but not sure what causes it.

Oi LSG , I really am sorry for your loss. I still cannot imagine my life without my father. I'm sure he must have loved you a lot and been very proud of the person you have grown to become.
