My folks both drew a lot in their youth, and both are nearsighted, though my dad would never admit it. I'm also nearsighted. It was really fun to compare my doodles to the doodles of my father when he was a young'an. We both use the same design elements even though I had never seen his doodles prior. There is one thing I do with curvy lines and circles that is almost exactly like one he showed me. I don't know if that is merely an odd coincidence or if the artistic-eye is hereditary.

My father is a professional artist and my mother is an arquithect, so both of them draw quite well...my father is better though. I think there was a time, few years ago, in which both of them wore glasses/contact lenses, but I think my father doesn't anymore. My mother probably does because she spends too much time on the computer at work.
I never had any sight problems, even though they sometimes hurt when I spend too much time on the computer. And there was a time in which I had alot of troubles seeing TV and did, involutarily, something weird with them... :huh:

Plus I cand do odd stuff with my eyes.

hehe I think this poll shows if anything, that there's no relation between eyesight and hereditary artistic talent

I'm nearsighted, and both my parents wear glasses. In fact, everyone in my family wears glasses. My kids are doomed to have glasses to, if not from me then from my wife, because glasses are hot.

Dad: Fantastic artist, really talented, used to make logos for companies all over Detroit. He's got skill.
Mom: No where near as good as my Dad, but I suspect she must have been somewhat of an assistant to him, because she knows everything to know about techniques and materials.

M eyesight is extremely nearsighted, i wear glasses everywhere.
My mom was a fashion designer and has shown considerable talent in contour drawings to me from a time before she became a nurse.
My dad... not so much.

I'm extremely nearsighted to the point of microscopic vision (we're talking borderline-superpower shit), but thanks to contacts nobody can tell

My dad was a fireman (retired) and my mom is a nurse.

Not that it matters because I don't think many of you have seen my art and can judge my level of competency ;p
