The color does vary. I think Kasey's (in the picture) are pretty light and the color ranges to very dark. As I recall, the Golden breed standard mentions eye color. I think it says dark is preferred but medium brown is acceptable. Our Zeke's eyes were a medium brown and I thought they were somewhat more expressive than the very dark eyes of some Goldens.
