How do people with color blindness see the world? Thanks to a website called color-blindness.com, those of us, who have to ask this question, can get a glimpse.
Contrary to popular belief, color blindness doesn’t actually mean that people see the world in black and white. In fact, more than 99% of all colorblind people do see color.
Because of this, the term “color vision deficiency” (CVD) is considered to be more accurate.
According to color-blindness.com, around 0.5% of women (1 in 200) and 8% of men (1 in 12) suffer from some form of CVD. There are several variations of vision deficiency, such as Deuteranomalia (which makes everything look a little faded), Protanopia (which makes everything seem a little green), and Tritanopia (greenish-pink tones), and only around 0.00003% of the world’s population suffers from total color blindness (Monochromacy).
