What Color Eyes Will My Baby Have
Hard to tell: This is the question you will only get guess answers for. I guess the main variation are dark and blue. The rest are some shades of either. The blue color is believed to be a recessive trait, meaning that it will only penetrate if 2 same genes were to be present, whereas the brown color is dominant, therefore requiring only one gene. The reality, though, often defies the above simple rule. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have brown eyes both my parents do too, my baby's dad has blue eyes. What are the odds the baby's eyes will be blue?
Unlikely: Unless you have blue eyed relatives.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: It doesn't work that way.Get a more detailed answer ›
Probably not: The factors that determine eye color are very complex, but generally darker colors are dominant genetically over lighter colors. Thus, if one parent has brown or dark eyes and the other blue, the baby will probably have brown (it might depend on the grandparent's eye colors as well). Note however that baby's eyes will not usually show their final color until they're older-usually blue at first. ...Read more
Childbirth?: If you are referring to bruising around the eyes at the time of childbirth, this is very common. With a normal delivery, it can still be somewhat traumatic to the baby, and bruising can be seen around the eyes. Usually there is no injury. If you are unsure you can ask your pediatrician, or if this has developed at a later age, an immediate eye examination or discussion with peds is indicated. ...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
Clean and massage: Your baby has a clogged tear duct. This is very common. First, you can wipe off the discharge with a clean washcloth 2-3 x/day. Then, you can massage the area between the nasal corner of the eye and the nose by rubbing it with a clean finger for 1 minute. You can massage the duct 4-6 times a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I have hazel eyes & my husband has blue, what color eyes might our daughter have? They are currently bluish gray. She is 2wks.
How common is it for my eyes to change colour so drastically? I have brown eyes and my dad has one blue eyes one green eye (that appears yellow sometimes) why the rapid change?
Not common: Eyes generally do not change colour after the age of 6 months. Certain conditions, such as arcus senilis, can cause eyes to appear to become more blue or grey, and others, such as certain inflammations and glaucomas can cause a brown iris to turn blue. If there is a rapid change in your eye colour, see an eye doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
Theres this girl always rubbing in her eye color to my face i want eyes that are grey not brown she calls them poop colored any idea how to change eye?
Don't be bullied: Please don't ever feel like you have to change yourself because of someone bullying you. Many people think brown eyes are great or even the best color. Often people insult others because of their own insecurity if you do decide you want a different eye color, i'd suggest seeing an optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if your eyes will handle contacts--different brands of colored contacts exist. ...Read more
Could be infection : "gooey" eyes could be a sign of infection (conjunctivitis) or it could represent a blocked tear duct. If tears can't drain, it can look like a discharge from the eye. If a tear duct is blocked, you might see a small swelling under the eye, close to the nose. Although your doctor should confirm this diagnosis, some gentle lacrimal massage (under the lower eyelid) may help open up the tear duct. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Both me and my partner have olive skin and dark hair. Brown eyes and his are greeny brown. What color hair will our baby have? Could it be ginger?
Probably dark, but: Any hair color genotype can be lurking behind the dominant dark phenotype - that's what we see. So, if both parents have a hidden gene for ginger - or blond, and the egg & sperm that start the baby happen to have those recessive genes - it is possible. It would be much less likely for two blonds to have a dark haired child. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my sclera is black and my eye color is blue I was born with it. am I normal?
Well,1st, exam: It's a good idea to have an ophthalmologist examine your eyes to reassure it's a benign pigment change. However, some congenitally occurring ocular pigmentations can have disease associations, such as melanosis oculi, nevus of Ota, junctional nevus, compound nevus, primary acquired melanosis, and melanomas. ...Read more

Be Seen: If one of your infant's eyes is yellow, it is unlikely to be due to a systemic cause like jaundice. Some parents will describe their child's eye as yellow when crusted tears or pus collects in the corner of the eye. The crusting of tears is not generally a problem, but the possibility of infection makes this a condition for which evaluation by a medical professional is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
