Eye colour is determined by multiple genes that you inherit. Natural human alleles code for certain pigments to be present or not present in the eyes. However, as green eyes are a mutation on one of these genes, maybe it could be possible to mutate some purple or orange eyes...

All the colors that you see are contained in the rainbow, because that is the visible part of the spectrum. Non-standard colors like puce, cyan, magenta etc. are still there in the standard range of wave-lengths of light we call the color spectrum. SO: whatever color your eyes appear to be, those colors are made up of fractions of the wavelengths of light from the rainbow. There is no other possibility, otherwise you couldn't see them as colors. Hazel, blue, brown, green etc. are complex colors made up ENTIRELY from the wavelengths of light from the rainbow!!!!!
