In brief: Not necessarily.
Identical vs. Fraternal twins are archaic terms that no longer apply to the modern perinatal terminology.
, however are still generally true and understandable to lay people. The color of eyes is not the determining factor in zygocity or chorionicity of twins - check prenatal records and placental pathology!
