Color Blindness

Color blindness is used in colloquial terms to refer to the difficulty in telling colors apart but a more correct term would be color vision defect. Color blindness is a misnomer because only a small percentage of people are unable to see any color.

No cure exists for color blindness, but special aids may be used to adapt to lack of color vision.
