What is Color Blindness?
It occurs when there is a problem with the color sensing cells in the eye.
It is caused by a loss or defect in one or all of the three cones in your retina causing you to see some colors but not others. If just one pigment is missing you can have trouble telling red from green, and in severe cases other colors. The most severe type of color blindness is only seeing shades of white, black, and gray.
