According to Colblindor, 99% of all colorblind people are suffering from red-green color blindness. The numbers of people with Monochromacy color blindness (Total color blindness) are very small, perhaps 1 in 33,000 people.

Are there currently any treatments for color-blindness?


There are no preventative treatments as it's genetic. However colored filters, spectacles, and contact lenses have been introduced that can alter someone's color perception. They might allow the wearer to see a few more colors or colors nearer to how a person with normal color vision would see them, but it doesn't really solve the issue. Color blindness affects so many aspects of our life. You can learn some tips & tricks at this online training course designed for colorblind people.
