If you have color blindness, it means you see colors differently than most people. Most of the time, color blindness makes it hard to tell the difference between certain colors. 

Usually, color blindness runs in families. There is no cure, but special glasses and contact lenses can help. Most people who are color blind can adjust and do not have problems with everyday activities. 

“I would love to see what color-blind people sees. It honestly would be cool. Like the difference of not being it and being it is nice,” Kayla Adkins, senior, said.

What are the types of color blindness? 

The most common type of color blindness makes it hard to tell the difference between red and green. Another type makes it hard to tell the difference between blue and yellow. People who are completely color blind do not see color at all. 

“I have a family member who is color-blind. I sometimes forget that he is and when I say blue hers like what blue thing. Its honestly better to descried what you are wanting so they know what you are talking about,” Deandra Short, senior, said. 

What are the symptoms of color blindness? 

The main symptom of color blindness is not seeing colors the way most people do. If you are color blind, you may have trouble seeing: 

  • The difference between colors 
  • How bright colors are 
  • Different shades of colors 

Symptoms of color blindness are often so mild that you may not notice them. And since we get used to the way we see colors, many people with color blindness do not know they have it. 

People with profoundly serious cases of color blindness might have other symptoms, too — like quick side-to-side eye movements (nystagmus) or sensitivity to light. 

“I have a worker that completely color blind. He only sees white and shades of grey and black. It is hard when I work with him because we work at Fosters, hardware store, we move a lot of bags and I tell him the run down and I always forget about him being color-blind because I can say red bag and he will say pink and I say no its red. Then I remember he is color blind and say I am sorry, for you yes, its pink. I always forget and correct him. I really do feel bad about it to,” Chance Gettings, junior, said. 


What is the treatment for color blindness? 

There is no cure for color blindness that is passed down in families, but most people find ways to adjust to it. Children with color blindness may need help with some classroom activities, and adults with color blindness may not be able to do certain jobs, like being a pilot or graphic designer. Keep in mind that most of the time, color blindness does not cause serious problems. 

“I really wonder what color-blind looks and feels like. I think it will be a wonderful experience,” Karliegh Miller, senior said. 

If your color blindness is happening because of another health problem, your doctor will treat the condition that is causing the problem. If you are taking a medicine that causes color blindness, your doctor may adjust how much you take or suggest you switch to a different medicine. 

If color blindness is causing problems with everyday tasks, there are devices and technology that can help, including: 

Glasses and contacts. Special contact lenses and glasses may help people who are color blind tell the difference between colors. 

Visual aids. You can use visual aids, apps, and other technology to help you live with color blindness. For example, you can use an app to take a photo with your phone or tablet and then tap on part of the photo to find out the color of that area.
