It doesn't matter if it is a free or shareware program.

Do you mean automatically, or a general-purpose photo-manipulation tool which will enable you to do this by hand? – mattdm Dec 8 '11 at 11:38
Oh, and do you mean, for example, brown eyes to blue, or do you want to fix redeye? – mattdm Dec 8 '11 at 11:38
that's it i want to change the color not to fix the red eyes. – kaissun Dec 8 '11 at 11:53
What about the first question? (Do you want to "paint in" the new color, or have the software figure it out all by magic?) – mattdm Dec 8 '11 at 12:15
i think that here are programs which make you to underline the color, i don't know .. like fixing some points and then make you to choose the color because when you paint the new color it's sure that you cannot do it very well .. – kaissun Dec 8 '11 at 14:50

Here's a simple tutorial to modify the eye color in Photoshop:

If you don't own photoshop, you can try the same thing in Gimp.

If you are asking the best software regardless size or cost, Adobe Photoshop is always the best choice. If you are looking for something lighter, maybe you should try Gimp.

You might have a look at Portrait Professional if you plan to do a lot of this. It's not super cheap but it does a ton of useful stuff for people photography. The link I provided is the the eye-color changing feature. There are heaps of other features in Portrait Pro. I typically just use Photoshop, but I also post-process only the smallest number of images from each shoot. If I were doing senior portraits or something like that, I'd certainly use this kind of tool.
