I am an Asian, more specifically a pure Chinese. As everyone knows, Asians have 
either black or brown eyes. But that's not the case for me. I'm born with blue 
eyes. For years, I had been baffled by my eye color and could find no 
explanation for it. My parents were brown eyed, so are the rest of my family. I 
would like to know why am I the only one with blue eyes? Is it a genetic defect? 
Would it affect my vision? (I'm short-sighted)
