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. 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

No Known Assn.:
Visual acuity that can be improved with glasses often relates to the shape of the eyeball which is, as far as is known, not associated with eye color.
The genes which determine eye color are being worked out: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002929707000407 and may have some weak association with risk of melanoma. ...Read more
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

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
I have blue eyes, but one of them has 1/3 of brown at the top. Can I make the brown more pronounced?
No: There is nothing that can permanently change the color of the eye. ...Read more
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

I have brown eyes, it is possible for me to get blue eyes? I heard that there is a possible surgery for this. Can i possibly get it?
Yes it can: Latisse (bimatoprost) is in the postaglandin analogue drug class. These drugs were invented to treat glaucoma by lowering eye pressure. Side effects growth of eyelashes, red eyes, and redness of the eyelids. They can also cause reactivation of herpes virus in the eyes, leading to inflammation and loss of vision. Long term use can cause increased pigmentation of the iris, making blue eyes brown. ...Read more
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
Yes: This has to do with inheriting the OCA2 eye color gene. It will determine if an eye color is brown if present. ...Read more
Genetics: The brown eyes parent may have a green/blue, but the brown gene is dominant so eyes look brown. But when that green/blue gene matches with similar gene from the spouse, then baby can have light eyes. ...Read more
