Antidepressants effect eye color

I have been taking Prozac for about 6 years an I have noticed that my eye color looks much darker ,I tried to research this online but nothing came up apart from how Prozac can increase melanin melanocytes in the skin ,could this all so mean it effects the pigments in the iris causing a change in color?

That has not been reported in eye research journals.  The color of the iris can change over time just like our skin tone changes. There are others that have reported this on this forum. Also the cornea gets cloudy around the edge due to aging. It is called an corneal arcus, this can make the iris look different color also.
