Is it possible to have brown eyed parents and grandparents, and yet have blue eyes yourself?

Blue requires 2: Dominent genes (a) require only one coded gene from a parent to express a color, while a recessive gene (a) requires a pair. At conception you get genes from both parents.Daddy brown eyes aa or aa donates one(a or a)& mommy brown eyes aa or aa donates the other. The baby could have aa, aa, or aa.

Genetics: Amblyopia (lazy eye) occurs when one eye is out of focus because it is more nearsighted, farsighted, or astigmatic than the other. In many cases, amblyopia may be hereditary, or passed down through the family. You may have inherited from one of your grandparents, and there is a small chance your child gets it, but a greater chance that he may not. ...Read more

Is it unusual to have blue eyes if neither of your parents do?

Is it unusual to have blue eyes if neither of your parents do?

Not really: The genetics of eye color is complex but my understanding is that brown is dominant over blue which is recessive. Each parent contributes one copy of one of a pair of genes. If both parents have brown+blue gene they will have brown eyes but each may pass on the blue gene to the infant resulting in expression of blue eyes. One brown gene dominates and produces brown eyes in most cases. ...Read more
