Can you really lighten your eye color by exposing it to sun more often?

In brief: Absolutely not

Not only can you not lighten your eyes this way, but you risk permanent vision loss from exposing the eye to the intense light of the sun.
One should never stare at the sun without specialized protective lenses.
