Just On the given basis, we cannot say anything about whether the light eye color trait is dominant or recessive because 2 copies of traits are inherited from each parent. We cannot tell which gene is dominant or recessive because we do not know the nature of these 2 variants.
A recessive trait will appear only when both the parents contribute recessive allele. A dominant trait will appear if both or at-least one parent contributes dominant allele. So from the give data, we can only say that both parents are contributing recessive alleles which results in light colored eye children.
