Are "hazel eyes" really lighter than "brown eyes"? Can "hazel eyes" be just called "brown eyes"?

Yes I think they are. Hazel is a greeny-brown so not as dark as brown. Just my opinion :-)

p.s. could still be called brown though, depending on how long you gaze into the eyes.

As someone who has hazel eyes, I don't agree. The greeny-brown-ness varies depending on mood, weather, etc. If I wear green my eyes look green, in some lights they sort of look yellowy...but no-one would ever describe me as having 'brown' eyes.

My case is the opposite. My eyes are green, with a thin ring of brown/yellow around the pupil. However, it is such a dark, almost forest green, everyone thinks I have brown eyes. It's not until you really look close that you can see they aren't truly brown. Even my driver's license and military records say they are brown. I finally got tired of correcting people, and just went with brown.

My eyes were brown,but as I age they have gotten lighter. They are greenish with a thin line of brown around the outer edge. Depending on what I wear they look green or brown. I believe they are hazel,though my drivers license says brown.
