Color Blindness Diagnoses and Treatments

Colorblindness is a deficiency in the way colors are seen. With this vision problem, a person has difficulty distinguishing between certain colors, such as red and green or blue and yellow. Red-green color deficiency is by far the most common form of color blindness; less common is the blue-yellow deficiency. It is extremely rare to not be able to distinguish any color at all-this disease is called achromatopsia and usually accompanies other serious eye problems.

The cone cells of the retina are responsible for allowing us to see color. Each cone contains a specific pigment-either red, green, or blue. Color blindness occurs when one of those color pigments is missing or defective. The deficiency may be partial (affecting only some shades of a color) or complete (affecting all shades of the color). Color blindness sometimes occurs after a person is born. Some other diseases that can lead to color blindness include retinis pigmentosa, optic neuropathy, Alzheimer's, diabetes, glaucoma, leukemia, liver disease, alcoholism, age related macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, and sickle cell anemia. Injuries or strokes that damage the retina, optic nerve, or particular areas of the brain can also lead to color blindness. Some medications, such as certain antibiotics, barbituates, anit-tuberculosis drugs, high blood pressure meds, and several medications used to treat autoimmune and psychiatric problems, can cause color vision changes as well.

Symptoms You May Experience:
Certain colors may appear gray, or two colors that appear different to normal people may appear similar to a person with color blindness. People who are born with color vision problems may not notice the difficulty that they have in distinguishing certain colors when they are young...
