We are going to change above image eye color, lets start first step.

Step 1: Zoom in on the eyes

Let’s zoom in on the eyes to make it easier to see what we’re doing. Select the Zoom Tool from the Toolbar. To center the eyes on your screen after you’ve zoomed in, press the H key on your keyboard to switch to Photoshop’s Hand Tool, and then click and drag the image into position:

Step 2: Select the lasso tool

To change the eye color without affecting the rest of the image, we first need draw a selection around the eyes. Select the Lasso Tool from the Toolbar

With the first eye selected, press and hold your Shift key. A small plus sign ( + ) appears in the lower right of your Lasso Tool cursor. Holding the Shift key tells Photoshop to add the selection you’re about to draw to the selection you’ve already drawn. Draw a selection around the second eye. Both eyes should now be selected:

Step 4: Add a hue/saturation adjustment layer

To change the eye color, we’ll use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. In the Layers panel, click the New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon.

As soon as you select Colorize, the person’s eyes will turn red. Red is probably not the color you’re going for, so we’ll learn how to change it next.

Step 7: The Saturation of the new color

Once you’ve chosen a new eye color with the Hue slider, drag the Saturation slider to the left to lower the intensity until the color looks more natural.
