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

Eyesight 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 eyesight. ...Read more

Could blue eyes be dominate over brown?

Generally not: Brown eyes dominate over blue. While eye color inheritance is somewhat mixed, if the only colors in question are strongly blue and strongly brown, then brown dominates. This means of the two genes for any one characteristic, in this case brown, if you have one brown (the other can be either), your eyes will be brown. You would require two blue genes to get blue eyes. ...Read more

Could you tell me if my wife has blue eyes, and I have brown eyes, can our child still have blue eyes?

Could you tell me if my wife has blue eyes, and I have brown eyes, can our child still have blue eyes?

Possibly: The brown eye gene dominates over blue so all blue-eyed people have 2 blue eye genes. Your wife will only pass the blue gene to her offspring. As a brown eyed male, you could have one blue and one brown or two brown genes. If you only have brown, your kids together should have brown eyes. If you have a blue and a brown, you could have a blue-eyed kid. ...Read more

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

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. If aa then eyes are blue. If you have blue eyes, your brown eyed parents were both aa(carriers of blue). ...Read more
