What contributes to a person's color blindness, and what are the possible solutions to help them?
You wake up in the morning everyday. You check the blue sky for hints of the weather that will be present that day. You choose our clothing, making sure that our shirts match the color of our jeans. Once all your belongings are gathered, you step outside and admire the soft, lime green grass and the purple flowers in the distance. The yellow rays of sunlight reflect off the wet pavement. You enter your car, and watch as the blur of many things slide past the car's window: a crossing light flashing its familiar red, green, and yellow lights. Everything turns into a blur of color. Color. What we see everyday, we're used to it. Yet we take it for granted. What if you couldn't tell the difference between certain colors, let alone know about the existence of other colors. This is the abstract situation of color blindness.
Color vision deficiency is another term for color blindness. To clarify, color blindness does not mean that you see the world in black and white. On this site we will cover how one obtains this diagnosis, and how one can treat it. Color blindness should have more awareness among society, given that we tend to overlook the term and underappreciate life's gifts; like the opportunity to see the variety of color the world has provided us with.
