  • Does Anyone Else Have Eyes Shaped Like Mine?

    Hello -

    I've always been curious about the shape of my eyes (see attached). They always seemed different than anyone else's eyes..

    MTDNA (FTDNA) - H11 {Pre-H11a}

    HVR1: 16220G - 16293G - 16311C
    HVR2: 195C - 263G - 309.1C - 309.2C - 315.1C - 523.2A - 523.1C

    CRS: 750G - 961G - 1438G - 4769G - 5162C - 8448C - 8860G - 13759A - 15326G

    They look normal to me.

      I have seen people with eyes shaped like that before.Why?

        They are wide and round near the nose; then the lower lid curves upward towards the outer edge leaving little of the white area exposed. I'm not saying they are not normal - I am saying that in comparison to all of my classmates, friends, and family they are very different. Just a matter of curiosity and wondereing if this may be a genetic trait.

            Yes they do somewhat. Mine are more rounded near the nose. She is a very pretty lady.

              Eye shape is not communicated by or linked to mtDNA, but rather to autosomes.

                    Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I have been trying and trying to insert an image into my post and am unable to do it. Can someone please tell me how? My image is on my hard drive; not on a website.
