Is it possible that bad eyesight (like shortsightedness) can be inherited?

I believe so.... My parents are both nearsighted. I am nearsighted. My children are nearsighted. I think it must have to do with the shape of the eye.

Absolutely! Just as you face shape is genetically determined, so is the shape of your eye. The shape of the eye determines the vision. Thre are other factors that come into play, but your DNA is the biggest for most people.

Short answer - yes.


ILoveMySon!
In studies it has been found that developing myopia is mainly genetic (89%) while environmental factors only accounted for 11%.
Research is still not conclusive on this matter so as it stands nearsightedness is predominately genetic, since even small deviations from normal structure cause significant refractive errors, it may be difficult to single out any specific genetic or environmental factor as their cause.
"Only 6%-15% of children with myopia come from families in which neither parent is myopic. In families with one myopic parent, 23%-40% of the children develop myopia. If both parents are myopic, the rate rises to 33%-60% for their children. One American study found that children with two myopic parents are 6.42 times as likely to develop myopia themselves as children with only one or no myopic parents. The precise interplay of genetic and environmental factors in these family patterns, however, is not yet known."
