General Colorblindness Information
Colorblindness is a general term for the inability to see colors the way most people see them. Colorblind people have difficulty distinguishing between certain colors, such as red and green or blue and yellow. Photoreceptors called cones allow us to appreciate color. These cones are concentrated in the very center of the retina and contain three photosensitive pigments: red, green and blue. Those with defective color vision have a deficiency or absence in one or more of these pigments. Red-green color deficiency is the most common form; a less common form is blue-yellow color deficiency. Rarely do color-deficient people see only in shades of gray or no color whatsoever.

Possible Causes of Colorblindness
Colorblindness is most commonly a genetic condition that affects about 8% of males and 0.4% of females. Inherited colorblindness affects both eyes and does not worsen over time. These color problems are linked to the X chromosome and are almost always passed from a mother to her son. Acquired colorblindness can result from poisoning; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; retinal or optical nerve disease or damage; use of certain medications or very poor nutrition. Acquired colorblindness may become progressively worse over time and usually affects distinguishing between blues and yellows. Nutritional deficiencies can also lead to color blindness.

Possible Symptoms of Colorblindness
Symptoms of colorblindness include difficulty distinguishing reds and greens (most common); difficulty distinguishing blues and greens (less common); objects appearing as various shades of gray (this occurs with complete colorblindness and is very rare); and reduced vision. Colorblindness may be partial (affecting only some colors) or complete (affecting all colors). Complete colorblindness is very rare. Those who are completely colorblind often have other serious eye problems as well.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Colorblindness
Most cases of color blindness cannot be cured; however, people who have difficulty distinguishing colors or parents who notice this problem in their children should see an eye care practitioner. Diagnosing color-vision deficiency early may prevent learning problems during the school years, since many learning materials rely heavily on color. Some people use special lenses for color blindness, which are filters available in either contact lens or eyeglass lens form.
