I don't see why you should get nervous about that. I also have changing
eyes, but I was living well even without knowing why. Didn't come in your
mind that probably other physiological phenomena could be more worth to be
studied than eye's colour changing with the mood? By the way, since the
*mood* is how an individual feel in response to a combination of
psycological and physiological phenomena, we should address the question:
what is changing with the *mood*? and what and why and how it affects eye's
colour? I'm sorry, but it's too much work to find out then that probably
the blood pressure was right the cause...
