How People With Different Types Of Color Blindness See The World
There’s more than one type of color blindness, but no matter what type someone has, color blindness dramatically alters the world around them.
This is what the world looks like through the eyes of someone who’s color blind.
Deuteranomalia is the most common form of color blindness. Around 4.63% of men suffer from it and in many cases don’t even realize. It’s clear from the photo that the colors have lost some of their brightness, especially with regard to green and red.
Protanopia is a less-widespread form of color blindness — only around 1% of men experience it. All shades of green and red appear somewhat faded, whilst blue and yellow shades remain virtually unchanged.
Tritanopia is a very rare form of color blindness affecting men and women to an equally small degree. Those who experience it see the world in greenish pink tones.
As for total color blindness, it certainly exists, but it’s extremely rare: only 0.00003% of the world’s population has it.
