A diagnosis of color blindness often comes as little surprise. Many people who are colorblind already know the way they view the world is different than others around them. Yet it can also be unsettling to learn that you have a vision difference that can lead to employment problems, driving problems and more. Just how serious is color blindness? What do you need to know to navigate this condition? Here’s a closer look at just what color blindness means and how you should manage it.
What Causes Color Blindness?
Color blindness typically occurs due to the genes a person was born with. When the cone cells in the human eye cannot sense one of the spectrums of light properly, or do not exist at all, color blindness occur. It can also occur due to eye injury, aging, or disease, like macular degeneration. Either way, the results are the same. When someone is color blind, they cannot see the full range of colors.
How Is Color Blindness Tested?
Color blindness testing is fairly simple. All you need to do to determine if you are color blind is to take a color blindness test, which has you look at a series of images. Each image contains dots, with contrasting colors in the shape of a number. A normal sighted person will easily distinguish the numbers, while a color-blind person will not be able to. You can take this test easily at home or at your eye doctor’s office.
How Is Color Blindness Treated?
There is no physical or medical cure for color blindness. However, filtering the light that comes into an individual’s eyes can correct the color perception and enhance color vision to the point that a color-blind individual can pass a color blindness test. Dr. Thomas Azman, color vision specialist, created the ColorCorrection System to do just that. Using his unique series of tests and color filters, he is able to restore color vision to people with color blindness, with a 100 percent success rate of passing the Ishihara Color Plate Test after treatment.
