Eye color: is genetically complex with a number of factors that determine the actual color appearance. However the brown gene is dominant and the blue gene is recessive. Since only one dominant gene is required for brown eyes, then brown eyed parents can produce blue or brown eyed children, while two blue eyed parents should produce only blue-eyed children. ...Read more

Sister has brown eyes, other two siblings have blue eyes. What gene is dominent?

Sister has brown eyes, other two siblings have blue eyes. What gene is dominent?

Brown over blue: In general, the gene for "brown" eye is dominant and the gene for "blue" or :hazel" is recessive. Everyone is born with blue eyes, but in those of us who are genetically destined to have brown eyes, the irides (irises) will turn brown in the first six months or so of life. Those of us who are destined to be "blue"or "hazel-eyed" won't have that iris color change over time. ...Read more

Do people with blue eyes generally have worse sight than people with brown eyes?

Not at all: Iris color is determined by the amount of brown pigment it contains. A large amount creates brown eyes; less pigment creates a blue appearance. Eye sight is related to the shape of the eye and health of the retina (film layer) and optic nerve. Some eye conditions can lead to poor vision and blue eyes (ocular albinism), but eye color itself is usually not related to eye sight. ...Read more

Can you tell me if i could have a child with green or blue eyes even though I have dark brown eyes?

Can you tell me if i could have a child with green or blue eyes even though I have dark brown eyes?

Yes: Your eyes require only one brown dominant eye color gene to make you brown, leaving room for a green or blue recessive gene in your mix. Dad would need to have a similar recessive gene to add, but these are possible. ...Read more
