Colour blindness is a condition in which we cannot recognise between some shades of colours. Different types of colour deficiency, which can be categorised into mainly three categories
1. Red – green colour blindness
2. Blue – yellow colour blindness
3. Very rare complete colour blindness
The most common colour blindness is red green colour blindness, which involves the deficiency to identify between the Shades Of Red and Green colours. Blue yellow colour blindness causes inability to differentiate between blue and yellow colours along with Red and Green. Scientifically known as monochromacy, complete colour blindness is very rare. It leaves visual acuity mostly blind.
Colour blindness is caused due to defect in genetic setup maintaining the function of cone cells which helps in identifying colours.
In short colour blindness cannot be cured. But it can be reduced using specially engineered spectacles which alter colours.
For most people with colour blindness ,they can conceive the world just like normal people but only some differences in differentiating colours. Scientists are still trying to find an absolute remedy to this condition.
