Ordinarily no, except in one extreme case (see below): the color of your eyes is the color of the iris, which is a muscle that determines the size of your pupil. You only see light that goes into your pupil, so any light that hits and reflects off of or gets absorbed by your iris is light that you don't see anyway. So, the short answer is no.
That said, the pigment that colors eyes absorbs ultraviolet, so if you are repeatedly exposed to high intensity light, and your eyes are light-colored, you may damage your eyes. This is why people in the tropics generally have brown eyes, while people in temperate regions can get away with having blue eyes. Hazel obviously is somewhere in-between brown and blue.
