I was wondering if anyone else was color blind. I know that I am red/green color blind and was wondering if anyone knew of a site where color blindness is broken down by race/gender. I only come up with melting pot nonsense when doing searches.

12 - 20 percent (depending on whose figures you want to believe) of the white, male population and a tiny fraction of the female population.

About 8% of men and 0.4% of women have some form of color blindness.

My boyfriend can't distinguish between red or green either. I am not sure to whether is it caused by actual eye colour (his eyes are green), racial (his bloodline is Russian) or inherited (no one in his family has it).

Sadly, I am colour blind. I've known it for a while now. The guy on that site makes it sound like a terrible burden, but I hardly ever think about it. I have heard that you can buy special contact lenses that can correct it now

I can see everything but the last picture really hurts my eyes when I look at it... (also does the light background of the blue BuB-style for it's too glaring.. I know this sounds weird... sometimes I think I'm becoming a vampire or somehing. :D )

I didn't see the 6 until after reading the solution. Could see the rest just fine.

No, thankfully I'm not colour blind.

No, thankfully, I'm not color blind... But I was legally blind at one point. And would have become totally sightless without undergoing an IOLI procedure that fully restored my vision to 20/20 without corrective lenses. :)

Not as far as I know.

Luckily nope, but my another grandfather (Finnish Swede) is (red-green color blindness).

I have wondered how that trait will be passed on through generations? As I don't have and neither do my parents, are there any real risks that my kids still could someway have it?

I have read that men are more often color blindness than women. Most common color blindnesses have something to do with X chromosome. Women have two of those, and if one of two is ''fine'' ... they are not color blindness. Men? If they have that in their X chromosome... they are.


If you see number 74 on the photo below ... you should be fine. If you see 21 or something else you might be color blind and if you see no numbers at all, you might be total color blindness.

If your husband will be colour blind, it may be possible... But who knows, it's still like at the lottery... You can never know what genes will manifest dominantly in your children, that's not something predictable, it's just probabilities...

Didn't know these... but I never looked into it.

At first glance it seemed like 71, but when looking more attentive it's 74...

At tests like these I usually see them all right... even if sometimes I have to look more attentive... I guess my vision is pretty normal when it comes to colours...

I took the following test https://enchroma.com/pages/test and my result was


YOUR RESULT IS NORMAL COLOR VISION
People with normal color vision can see up to one million distinct shades of color.

Another test which I did right https://colormax.org/color-blind-test/

And one more https://www.colour-blindness.com/colour-blindness-tests/ishihara-colour-test-plates/ which I also did right...

So... my vision is normal...

I guess I have a very good vision when it comes to colours... Many years ago I realized I was able to distinguish between two shades of green which were very close to each other, while my father couldn't do that, for him it was the same shade of green... And he has normal vision too...

Well, I take it as a blessing... Sometimes I like to paint or play with colours... and enjoy different shades... also while being in Nature... I can't imagine how my life would be without this joy... I really enjoy seeing different shades, either when it comes to art or being out in Nature and admiring either a sunrise, a sunset or a forest with different shades of green... :D

I don't see any numbers here, I just see different shades of green.
Army tests showed I had perfect normal vision, but weak color vision.

If you want look on this matter more .... here is one test.
https://www.playbuzz.com/jennifers/can-you-pass-a-color-blind-test

As you have fixed your answer ... you will see next photo automatically. Totally there are 10 pictures.

I found picture 6/10 pretty hard/difficult (options: A hat, A bird, A horse) ... I chose the best one (skipping 2 even less likely options away) ... which was luckily ok :). All the rest 9 pictures were very very easy for me.

10/10 correct :clap.
