What color of eyes have the best vision? While blue eyes are more sensitive to light during the day, people with blue eyes tend to see better at night – unless there are bright lights. In that case, the lack of melanin makes them as sensitive to light at night as they are during the day.
Does eye color have any benefits? Those with darker colored eyes experience less visual discomfort in bright, sunny conditions. Also, darker irises reflect less light within the eye, reducing susceptibility to glare and improving contrast discernment—so people with darker eyes may have better vision in high-glare situations, such as driving at night.
Do light eyes see better in the dark? Light-eyed people (with blue or green eyes) have slightly better night vision because they have less pigment in the iris, which which leaves the iris more translucent and lets more light into the eye.
Are blue or brown eyes stronger? Actually, the eye colors of your kids fits perfectly well with a simple model of eye color inheritance. In fact, in your case, your genes for eye color are “stronger” than your husband’s because brown is dominant over blue (we’ll go more into this later).
