5 Simple Tips To Handle Your Color Blindness

WHY WE SEE COLORS DIFFERENTLY?


Think of your eye as a camera.The front part has a lens. Its job is to focus images on the inside of the back of your eye. This area is called the Retina. It’s covered with special nerve cells that react to light.


Your Eyes see differences in the light that comes in. It’s a bit like the way we hear sounds as being low or high.


Cones control your color vision. We have 3 types of cones. Some react to short-wavelength light, others react to medium wavelengths, and others react to higher wavelengths.


So, 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗜𝘀 𝗖𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗿 𝗕𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀?


When the cones have all the various pigments -- called 'Photopigments' -- your eye sees all possible colors. If there’s a problem with the pigments, you won’t see colors the way you should.This is called color deficiency or color blindness.

If just one pigment is missing, you might only have trouble with seeing certain colors.
