What does Color Blind mean ...?

Color blindness is a condition in which the quality of vision for color decreases.

Someone who suffers from this disease will find it difficult to distinguish certain colors (Partial color blindness), by or even all colors (Total color blindness).

Color Blindness

Basically the eye has special nerve cells containing pigments that react to color and light.

This cell has three pigments that function to detect red, green, and blue. In someone who is color blind, the pigment cell is damaged or does not function, so the eye cannot detect certain colors or even all colors.

Cell damage occurs because of a gene abnormality that is passed from parent to child. In addition to inherited gene abnormalities, there are also several other factors that can cause cell damage, namely:

1. Suffering from diabetes, glaucoma or multiple sclerosis.

2. Drug side effects of digoxin, ethambutol, phenytoin, chloroquine, and sildenafil.

3. Exposed to carbon disulfide chemicals used in the rayon industry, and styrene used in the plastic and rubber industry.

4. Damage or injury to the eye due to an accident.

Age can also be a factor in a person suffering from color blindness. With age, the ability of the eye to capture light and color will decrease. This is a natural process that can happen to everyone.

Color blindness is a condition where the sufferer has difficulty distinguishing certain colors (Partial color blindness) or even the overall color (Total color blindness).

1. Blue looks green, and it is difficult to distinguish pink from yellow and red.

2. Blue looks like green, and yellow looks like gray or bright purple.

Total Color Blind

Different from the two types above, a person suffering from a type of total color blindness has difficulty distinguishing all colors.

Even some sufferers can only see white, gray, and black

Color Blind, Recognize Early
