Melanin is a pigment which is responsible for eye colour.  People who have brown eyes have the most amount of melanin, people who have green or hazel eyes have medium amounts of melanin and people who have blue eyes have the least amount of melanin. Without melanin, all eyes would appear blue.

Also most Caucasian babies are born with blue eyes because they have a small amount of melanin when they born.
