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

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

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

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

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

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
