Color Blindness

Color BlindnessContrary to the name, there are very few who suffer from color blindness who do not see any color at all. Most people who are color blind will only be prevented from seeing certain shades of a color or will recognize certain colors as an incorrect color. It is rare that a color blind person will only be able to see grey, black and white.

 

What Causes Color Blindness?

Color blindness occurs when the there is an issue with the three types of cone cells within the macula that sense red, green and blue colors. If the cone cell is missing, the person won’t see that color at all. If something is damaged within the cone cell, the person may only see certain shades of that color or may interpret that color as another such as confusing blue and green.

 

Will Color Blindness Worsen Over Time?

Color blindness does not get progressively worse over time. It never changes and cannot be corrected. Most people who are color blind have to learn to adapt to a world of color in other ways such as memorizing the order of color on traffic lights.

 

The human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day.  From morning till night, our vision allows us to see beautiful Florida sunsets, our beloved family and much more.  Here at 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore, our main goal is to keep you up-to-date on everything related to eye care and eye health.

Are you due to visit the optometrist?

doctor-visitAre you due to visit the optometrist? Even if you don’t wear glasses and your eyes are feeling fine, we’re here to share several reasons why you should get your eyes tested on a regular basis.

Visiting your local optometrist allows doctors to look directly at your blood vessels which can reveal early warning signs of serious health problems such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes before the symptoms show up anywhere else in the body.

Depending on your health and age, you should also visit the optometrist to make sure you are above driving standards. Sometimes people won’t even realize they have blurred vision as deterioration tends to happen quite slowly over time. Driving standards are very strict and you might be driving illegally without even knowing it! If you were involved in a car accident and your vision was found to be below the legal standard, your insurance might be void. This is a worst case scenario but it’s better to be safe than sorry!

A visit to the optometrist can also let you know if you have a lazy eye. This is especially important for children, so if you are a parent or guardian, make sure you take your kids in for regular eye exams. Check out our post on Top 5 Tips on Choosing Children’s Eyeglasses for more information on bring your kids to the optometrist.

Certain eye diseases such as Glaucoma show no symptoms and most people are unaware of it until it’s too late. Regular visits to your optometrist can easily pick up eye diseases such as these to ensure your vision is protected.

Do you suffer from regular headaches and wonder what the cause is? You should visit your optometrist! A large percentage of headaches are caused by visual problems and most general practitioners will recommend you get your eyes tested to see if that is the problem.

We hope this article has inspired you to visit your local optometrist. Your vision is priceless and a thirty minute appointment once a year is certainly something you should be able to commit too. Getting your eyes tested regularly will help you stay on top of your general health, eye diseases and even headaches!
