What is Color blindness?
Color blindness is a condition where a person has difficulty distinguishing between certain colors or cannot see them at all. This is typically caused by an inherited genetic mutation that affects the way the eyes perceive colors.
There are three types of color blindness:
Deuteranopia (difficulty distinguishing between green and red), Protanopia (difficulty distinguishing between red and green), and Tritanopia (difficulty distinguishing between blue and yellow).
Color blindness can range in severity, from mild difficulty distinguishing certain colors to the inability to see any colors at all. It is more common in men than women and affects about 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women of Northern European descent.
In addition to the frustration and confusion caused by color blindness, some individuals may also experience discomfort, headaches, or eye strain from trying to discern colors.
