Question Eye Color

I'd like to hear some opinions on how people have done with different color eyes. I'm not talking about having one blue eye and one brown like my butcher - I'm talking flies
I notice many of the dark colored flies used at night have red eyes, why is that?

Do you notice a difference between

I've always been partial to blue eyed blondes but again we're talking flies here.

Has anyone noticed a preference for eye color in Stripers that are keyed onto a bait? How about light conditions? Those red eyes always freaked me out a little. I can see yellow eyes for an eel fly but as far as I've observed most of the other bait fish are pearl eyed.
