Does a person’s eye color have any relation to color blindness? My boyfriend has blue eyes and is colorblind. A friend was telling me that having blue eyes makes you more likely to have color blindness. Is this true?

Your friend is wrong. There is no relationship between eye color and color vision. Lighter color eyes may be more light sensitive.
I . I don't know of any research linking color blindness with iris color. http://www.hhmi.org/askascientist/answers/20100216-10.html.
