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.

Tell Your Children to Play Outdoors for Better Eyesight

playing-outside-300x199Now there’s one more reason to tell your kids to play outside! Did you know that children who play outdoors have better eyesight than those who play indoors according to Inquisitr.

Nearsightedness has increased over 65% since 1970 which is largely due to children playing video and computer games. Nearsightedness, also known as Myopia, is a condition where the light that travels into the eye does not focus on the retina but in front of it. This error causes far away images to be blurry. Images that are nearby are not affected and appear clear. 

The only way to correct nearsightedness is to wear corrective glasses, contact lenses are surgery. It’s important to book an eye exam for your child if you’re worried as nearsightedness is linked to serious eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and retina detachment.
