Apart from having to fend off all the men chasing after you, I have never heard of any other problems with such a combination :)

Blue eyes are generally probably more associated with lighter skin (as would be blonde hair), and the light skin may have problems.

The following comment relates to possible slight long term issues regarding blue eyes (nothing to do with hair colour).

MACULAR DEGENERATION
A family of diseases in which the nervous tissue of the macula degenerates, causing lost of central vision.
The most troublesome is the common age-related macular degeneration (again, it's better not to call it "senile"....) Look for drusen around the macula, and maybe some new vessels in the choroid. Smoking clearly brings it on faster. Whether sunlight exposure is really a risk factor is far from clear ("maybe yes": Arch. Ophth. 119: 246, 2001; "no": Arch. Ophth. 119: 1463, 2001; "actually less if there's been heavy sun exposure" Ophth. 104: 770, 1997). Having blue eyes is at best a minor risk (Ophth. 105: 1359, 1998). Possibly zinc and anti-oxidants slows it down, vitamins C and E and carotene flopped ("Age-Related Eye Disease Study", Arch. Ophth. 119: 1417 & 1439, 2001).

I had brown hair (now I'm bald) but I still have clear eyes.
Clearly enough, there is strong evidence (= I think) that blue eyes are significantly related to baldness and similar catastrophic events.  Further studies are needed to confirm these extraordinary observations.

We should organize a meeting to discuss these fascinating results and inform the whole scientific community about it!
By the way, I refused hair transplant: are you going to have a new smashing brain implanted?
