[PMID 18093281] According to tree scanning analysis, the proportion of eye colour variation explained by this nucleotide position is merely 4%. Thus, additional variation present in the OCA2 gene and perhaps some other pigment related genes must be taken into account in order to explain the high phenotypic variation in iris colour.
[PMID 18252222] Among rs12913832(A;A) individuals, the penetrance for green/hazel eyes was 50%, 21%, and 6%, respectively, for rs1800407(A;A), (A;G), and (G;G) genotypes, respectively. R419Q is also a significant risk factor (odd ratio 1.27, p=0.0006) for cutaneous malignant melanoma.

|summary||This variant is associated with eye color, as is OCA2 R305W. Individuals with this variant are reported to be more likely to have green/hazel eyes as opposed to blue/gray eyes. Other variants in this gene are associated with oculocutaneous albinism (albinism which involves skin and eyes).|
