Color blindness is surprisingly common, yet poorly understood by most. For most people the condition is more accurately called “color vision deficiency” or CVD. Anomalies in the perception between red and green colors are found in 8% of men (1 in 12) and 0.5% of women. The defects affecting the red and/or green cones are caused by genetic mutations carried on the X-chromosome.
We put together a playlist of videos from YouTube that give a great overview of what color blindness is caused by and what it is like to be color blind. We hope you find this informative:
