What is Colour Blindness?
Colour blindness is a condition in which one’s ability to see colour variations is compromised. Colour vision deficiency is another term for it. In simple terms, colour blindness occurs when a person is unable to distinguish between different hues. This usually entails but is not limited to, greens and reds, as well as blues sometimes. Those with total colour blindness may feel uncomfortable in bright settings.
