This Is How People With Color Blindness See The World

02 (Custom)

Have you ever wondered what life looks like through the eyes of somebody with color blindness? On this website called  you can just take a look. Letting aside the name, color blindness doesn’t mean that people see the world in black and white.

More than 99% of all colorblind people can see color, so the term “color vision deficiency” (CVD) is actually considered to be more accurate. According to the website, over 0,5 % of women and 8% of men suffer from the form of CVD. Anyways, there are also several variations of vision deficiency like Deuteranomalia (where you see things a little faded), Protanopia (where everything looks a little green) and Tritanopia (with greenish-pinkish tones), and just 0.00003% of the world’s population suffers from color blindness (Monochromacy.)

This is how different colors look from different CVD lenses.

This is how colors look to somebody who has a normal vision.



People with Deuteranomalia which is the most common type of color blindeness, see a more subdued color palette especially with the colors like green and red.



With Protanopia, the shades of green and red look faded, yellow and blue seem largely unaffected. Only 1% of men experience this type of CVD.



People with this CVD see colors in a greenish/pinkish tone. It is a very rare form of color blindness.

People who have Monochr0macy can see in black and white but only 0.00003% of the world’s population are affected by this condition.
