Can you clarify what you mean by manipulating melanin?
Do you mean vitamin supplementation?
What colors are you eyes now and what would you like them to be?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
By either taking a supplement or placing some type eydrops on your eyes- is there perhaps a theory to do this-?
Expert:  Dr. James replied 7 years ago.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to change you eye color with supplementation or eye drops. There are many different colors of soft contact lenses which look very natural. The most common brands are Freshlook color blends and Acuvue 2 colors. I'd recommend you see you optometrist for a contact lens fitting for that.
