I've never heard of black eyes that weren't actually just very dark brown.
Perhaps you're experiencing the color saturation effect, and just seeing your eyes differently?
But you say that others have confirmed it. What did they say, exactly?
Yes very dark brown is technically considered black, they don't put very dark brown on your driver's license, its black and black enough that you can barely see the pupil
they asked me if I wore contacts and if I changed the color of them
some points to consider:
1) Is this the same mirror you use daily?
different lighting and mirror quality could produce slight visual variations!
2) Was it a particularly sunny day?
I have personally noticed in sunny situations my own eyes appear to be a much lighter brown and also confirmed by others talking to me!
3) Do you have pictures you can compare it with?
I know personally one of the first things i did upon getting a digital camera was take a close photo of my eye just out of interest (im a bit strange like that)
4) Have you checked the colours in a controlled situation while on piracetam and off of it?
my thinking for this would be to set a chair in front of a mirror in an electrically lit room and look at your eye color (preferably morning giving you sleep time to clear your system) then repeat an hour after piracetam (photograph both) this would determine if it was the visual effects some receive from piracetam and/or if the piracetam actively causes the change
5) another interesting point is its been theorised that the eyes can be used for diagnosis of deficiencies and illnesses...(i have not fully read up on the details)
now im not in any way suggesting your ill however id be interested in your diet before you started supplementing with CDP-Choline.. did you eat alot of eggs and choline high foods? or could a deficiency in choline have lead to a darkening of your eyes
6) have you been having improved sleep the dark bags around eyes from lack of sleep can make people look older and more worn out a subtle change in the frame of your eyes could change the perception of there colour not to mention all the other benefits of improved sleep!
hope ive given you some ideas to look into
Same mirror as usual
It was a sunny day but I checked with a whole bunch of mirrors, both ones that have natural light shining through the rooms and ones without windows but you may still be right
I don't have any pictures that you can clearly see my eyes, I'm not photogenic haha and ill try #4 when I have the chance
#5 is a possibility, Don't eat as much eggs as I used to
Sleep is the same
There is no such thing as "Black eyes". Your iris is only brown.. it could be light brown or dark brown.. but if you ask anyone, and if they see your iris' colour as being dark, they're going to say you have brown eyes.
People always say my eyes are black because the brown is hardly noticeable, but all in all it didn't change the way I see myself if its even the piracetam, but other people noticed the change as well so its not just me
edit: I should also note that my eyes are back to regular and...yea DEFINITELY something going on with me eyes, the color change before was crazy now that I'm seeing the dark brown again haha...I want it back
