December 13, 2019: One of my 23andMe reports says that people with my genetics most likely have brown or hazel eyes. However my eyes are blue, green, and grey. I know you should take their estimates with a grain of salt, but how is it possible I have a completely different color from the report?

March 30, 2016: I belong to 23andMe (DNA testing site) and have always wondered why it said I am more likely to have blue eyes. They use SNP: rs1393350 where I am a GG and rs12896399 where I am a TT. However, I have dark green eyes. Why do my SNPS that determine eye color basically say I should have had blue eyes when I clearly do not?
