My father is in the final stages of his life and yesterday

Customer Question

My father is in the final stages of his life and yesterday I noticed his eye color has changed from hazel to an icy blue color. I noticed the same thing a few years ago when my mother died. Can you explain this change in eye color? Thanks.
