Ever wondered what life looks like through the eyes of somebody with color blindness? Luckily, a website called color-blindness.com let’s you take a glimpse.
Despite the name, color blindness doesn’t actually mean that people see the world in black and white. In fact, more than 99% of all colorblind people can in fact 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).
Rasplove decided to test various images to see how different colors look through different CVD lenses.

Deuteranomalia

The most common type of color blindness is called Deuteranomalia. Around 4.63% of men and 0.36% of women experience this type of color vision deficiency, many of whom don’t even realise. People with Deuteranomalia see a more subdued color palette, especially when it comes to colors like green and red.
Protanopia

When somebody has Protanopia, all shades of green and red look rather faded, whereas yellow and blue shades seem largely unaffected. Only around 1% of men experience this type of CVD.
Tritanopia

People with Tritanopia see colors with a greenish/pink tone. It’s a very rare form of color blindness and is believed to affect only 0.0001% of men and women.
Total color blindness (Monochromacy)

Total color blindness, or Monochromacy, is the rarest form of color vision deficiency. People who have it can only see in black and white, but it’s estimated that only 0.00003% of the world’s population are affected by this particular condition.
