What color are my eyes?

I have had this discussion with many people and I thought the consensus was that they were green and not hazel. Now this is being disputed and to be honest I don't know cause I don't look at my own eyes. They hid behind thick glasses for most of my life, so I didn't pay much attention to them.
So you tell me... here's wikipedia's description:

Visually, gray eyes often tend to appear to change between the shades of blue, green and gray; this is because gray eyes are extremely light, as mentioned before. The color change for gray eyes is usually influenced by the lighting and the colors in the surroundings (such as clothes, makeup, etc.).

Green eyes:

Hazel eyes:

Hazel eyes often appear to shift in color from a light brown to a medium golden-dark green.
Definitions of the eye color "hazel" vary: it is sometimes considered to be synonymous with light-brown and gold.

Now one more point that was made for hazel eyes is: In North America, "hazel" is often used to describe eyes that appear to change color.
Which in this case it would mean that I have hazel eyes But based on the photos the gray eye looks the closest to mine. Plus it says that the eye reflects color based on surroundings and if I wear blue they are bluer, green then greener and a lot of times they are a grayish color.I've never heard someone say, "My eye color is gray" that sounds weird. But then again, I am weird!

So what do you think? This is serious business folks...I don't want to be lying on my driver's license!
