EXTREME PROTAN

Extreme protans (“pro-tans”) have a severe or complete red-green color blindness. Unfortunately, the EnChroma® lens technology is not effective for this condition.

It is possible that you could do better by taking the test again, or that your computer screen does not show colors accurately. However, typically for a person with a protan-type result of this severity, the EnChroma glasses have no effect on color vision.

Color-Name Confusion

People with color blindness might find it difficult to "name" some of the colors they see. Greens, yellows, oranges, reds, and browns may appear similar especially in low light. It can also be difficult to tell the difference between blues and purples, or pinks and grays.

Difficulty with Traffic Signals

Green lights may appear to be extremely pale or even white. Yellow and red lights may appear indistinguishable, especially at night. People with color blindness may react up to 30% slower to color coded information, which affects their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.

Impaired Color Perception

People with normal color vision can see about 1 million distinct shades of color. Those with color blindness see only about 5% to 10% as many.

Hereditary Factors

Inherited red-green color blindness affects 1 in 12 men. Only about 1 in 200 women have color blindness, but almost 1 in 6 are carriers of the gene. Red-green color blindness is an X-linked recessive trait. Fathers with color blindness pass the gene down to their daughters, and the daughters have a 50% chance of passing it down to their sons.
