Summer! The time of year we enjoy looking around at all the beauty – the blue sky with it’s wonderful array of scattered clouds, the deep vibrant colors of flowers; the many thousands of shades of green against the blue sky. In the summer the colors are endless.
Have you ever had a fight with someone where you say blue, and they say green? Well, what is it that those who are color blind to one degree or other actually see? Well, take a look at the color chart.
According to http://www.nlm.nih.gov
Most of us see our world in color. We enjoy looking at a lush green lawn or a red rose in full bloom. If you have a color vision defect, you may see these colors differently than most people.
There are three main kinds of color vision defects. Red-green color vision defects are the most common. This type occurs in men more than in women. The other major types are blue-yellow color vision defects and a complete absence of color vision.
Most of the time, color blindness is genetic. There is no treatment, but most people adjust and the condition doesn’t limit their activities.
