Question What are the chances?

Hi

I was wondering that if a husband and wife both have shortsightedness (distant objects appear blurred), what are the chances that their baby would have the shortsightedness problem?

Thanks for any inputs.

Re: What are the chances?

You won't know for sure. Those might be recessive traits & he might be born the complete opposite with 20/20 vision. If its something hereditory, chances are high.
But from what I see, its 40% yes, 60% no.

I don't know the chances, but for what it's worth, both my parents are short-sighted, and all four of us kids are too.
