What you need to know:
Color blindness affects approximately 1 in 12 men (8%) and 1 in 200 women in the world. In the US there are approximately 15 million color blind people.
Some people with color blindness can only see 2-3 different hues of color or maybe even none, compared to someone with normal color vision who can distinguish 7 hues of color.
As a result of this color blindness can make reds, greens, yellows and browns appear similar to one another.
How it can affect someone's life:
Driving - More specifically identifying signal lights and color coded signs that are designed to stand out such as danger and warning signs.
Color coded charts - People suffering from color blindness can have great difficulty reading color coded charts and other similar types of activities.
Jobs - Certain job restrictions apply for someone with a color vision deficiency.
Education - More specifically school education and all of the colors that are needed to complete class-room activities.
Living a life full of color - Something most of us take for granted but it is estimated that someone who is color blind may only see as few as 10,000 shades of color compared to someone with normal color vision who can see up to 1,000,000 distinct shades of color.
