Eye honey: Seriously?
The iris of the eye is the color it is largely because of the extent of pigmentation granules associated with the cells there. Lightening the iris would require some kind of damage or degranulation to those cells. Not a good idea. If honey would do that, which i really doubt, sounds like you should just keep it in your herbal tea and use it orally.
