Color blindness does not mean visual loss or full blindness. Deficiency in the way we see color can cause this problem in our vision. Some certain colors can not be distinguished properly such as blue and yellow or red and green.

This disease is mostly inherited and affects males more frequently than females. Red-green color deficiency is the most common form of color blindness. It might also occur due to the damages on our optic nerve or presence of Glaucoma.


Difficulty in distinguishing those colors is the main sign of color blindness.


Some time ago, it was not possible to treat the inherited color blindness but only the color blindness which gained after birth. But today, both types can be treated by the implementation of intraocular lenses in the eye.
