Is it normal to have a blind spot in both your eyes?

In brief: Yes

All patients actually have a physiologic blind spot that corresponds to where the optic nerve is located in the retina.
It may be able to find this yourself by holding your finger in front of your face in the right location. When both eyes are open, each eye's visual field will "cover" the blind spot of the other eye and there will be no blind spot visible.
