    Colorblindness Test

    Types of color-blindness and color-weakness

    When we talk about colorblindness, we’re actually referring to two conditions: colorblindness and color-weakness. Colorblind people can’t see certain colors at all, while color-weak people can see colors, but their ability to identify the color is reduced.

    There are several kinds of color-blindness:

    • Total colorblindness
    • Red colorblindness
    • Green colorblindness
    • Blue-and-yellow colorblindness
    • Full color-weakness
    • Partial color-weakness

    Have you ever wondered if you are colorblind or color-weak? The following test features images that are representative of an official colorblindness test. Look at these test charts to determine if you may be colorblind and which kind of colorblindness you may have.

    If you believe you are colorblind or color-weak, contact your eye doctor for a comprehensive exam and diagnosis. If you’re struggling to make sense of your prescription, check out our handy guide.

    Do Colorblind People Need Glasses?

    Colorblindness doesn’t affect the ability to see clearly for most people. In fact, some people who are red and green colorblind may be able to distinguish textures more efficiently than people who are not colorblind.

    Though rare, achromatopsia, complete color-blindness, can cause blurry vision and extreme light sensitivity. People with achromatopsia may benefit from glasses that filter the amount of sunlight that reaches the eyes. Your optometrist can recommend the best lenses for your eyes based on your diagnosis.

    For stylish light filtration, Payne Glasses offers an assortment of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses for women, men and kids
