Fovea is bullseye: The fovea is a part of the retina where what we see is centrally focused to a crisp image. It is the bullseye of the film in the camera of the eye

Fovea: The retina is the nerve layer in the eye that forms images. Central sharp images are formed on the fovea, the bull's eye center of the macula which is at the center of the retina.

Eye color can change: Certain types of inflammation (Fuch's heterochromic iridocyclitis) can cause one eye to appear to change colors later in life. Also, certain drops for glaucoma can cause blue eyes to turn brown with time as well
