Eyesight and heredity - lovycrop - 09-01-2016

Does eyesight have anything to do with heredity? How much is the probability that a boy/girl will have myopia, if one of their parents have the same?

Even if you got a number for how many children got myopia when their parents were myopic, it wouldn't mean anything until you compare that number with parents without myopia and get a statistically significant difference.

That being said, it's more behavioral. You're barking up the wrong tree.
