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

When i was a baby i had blue eyes, as i grew up they turned green, and now i'm 18 and their slowly turning brown, i want to keep them green, how?

Sorry: The color of the iris is determined by your genetics. The iris is inside the eye and cannot be modified without harm to the vision. If you want different color eyes, the only way is to pick out a colored contact lens to wear over the front of the eye. ...Read more
