More Information About Color Blindness

Normal vision means you have normal photopigments, or color-detecting molecules, that allow you to see a full array of colors. Color blindness or deficiency, means your photopigments are abnormal causing your color perception to be limited and inaccurate.

There are 3 main types of colorblindness; take the test to find out if you could be colorblind. If you believe you could have color vision deficiency, consult with your eye care professional.
