December 3, 2014: My husband and I both have brown eyes. Mine are a lighter brown and his are dark brown. We have three children. One with green eyes (exactly the color of my sister's eyes), one with blue eyes, and one with dark brown eyes. My mom had green eyes, all the other grandparents had dark brown eyes. Where did the blue eyes come from?

May 22, 2013: I have a question about the possibility of there being an eye color gene on the Y chromosome.  In my family, my paternal grandfather had a very distinct shade of blue eyes. My father, brother and nephew (brother’s son) all have blue eyes. Only the males in our family have blue eyes.  My mother and sister-in-law have green eyes.  When you look at the four generations of males it seems like the blue eyes have only been passed father to son.

May 8, 2012: Hello, I am curious about what eye color my child might have. I have what I think you call Sectoral Heterochromia. One eye is green, the other is split 50/50 directly in half. Green on top/brown on bottom. My wife has blue eyes.  Will my child have different colored eyes too?  If not, what color will they be?
