7 Striking GIFs To Make You Experience Color Blindness


We all know that color blindness is the inability to distinguish the differences between certain colors. But have you ever wondered how the world looks from the eyes of a person with color blindness?

"Clinic Compare", an institution in England, created these GIFs to make it possible for people to experience different types of color blindness. Let's look at them.

1. Blue cone monochromacy


It's very rare in women and mostly seen in men. This genetic-linked disorder is seen in 1 in 100 people and it makes it hard to distinguish red and green tones, while making the colors look more pale.

2. Tritanopia (Blue blind)


People who lack blue cone cells have this very rare disorder. Blue appears green and yellow appears violet or light grey.

3. Tritanomaly


This is an alleviated form of blue-yellow color blindness, where the S-cones are present but have some kind of mutation. The person sees the blue and yellow colors paler than normal.

4. Deuteranomaly (Green weak)


It happens when green color receptor cone cells are mutated and makes the person see red and green weak. This is the most common type of color blindness.

5. Achromatopsia


This disorder causes the person to see no colors at all.

6. Protanopia


Protanopia is defined as being less sensitive to red light. These people see the world as more green. It happens when a person is missing the L-cones. They can't distinguish red and blue from green.

7. Protanomaly


Protanomaly can be described as a lighter version of protanopia. These people have L-cones but they are highly defective. It's hard to distinguish red and blue from green but not as hard as it is in protanopia.
