In brief: No

Eye color is genetic and amount of pigmentation can change with age, inflammation, iris freckles, prostaglandins, various diseases -- even a laser is being developed to change eye color. Pupil dilation and constriction may make an eye color look different.

In brief: No

Eye color is permanent unless you have rare eye conditions.
Some individuals with hazel eyes can appear green or brown depending on the clothes they wear or lighting conditions. Glasses may accentuate this. Also, as some people age, they develop a white ring around the cornea that can cause the iris to appear more blue. Have an eye doctor examine your eyes to be sure.

In brief: No

Eye color is genetically determined by the amount of melanin in the iris.
This tends to decrease as you age and the eyes lighten. Some diseases can induce lightening of the iris and some medications such as Lumigan can cause darkening but glasses don't have any real effect.
