r/colorblind: For people who see the world differently

Public description

For people who see the world differently#### Description Welcome to r/colorblind!

This is a community to share your experiences and anecdotes with colourblindness, and how it affects your life.

This community is to offer resources for both colourblind and people with normal vision for better awareness and understanding of this condition. We have custom flair available above to signal what type of colourblindness you have or if you have "Normal Vision" too!

Unsure if you are colourblind or not? There are various tests on the internet, but note that they are not always accurate, and your computer monitor might display colours incorrectly, giving incorrect results.

Here are a few web-based tests

The best way to find out if you are colourblind is to go to your optometrist and ask for a printed Ishihara Colour Vision Deficiency test.

Color blindness/Colourblindness can be spelled however you like as long as the point gets across. For clarity, if you mean "being able to see no colour at all" please point that out clearly or use "total color blindness".

Please feel free to message the moderators (or just submit a post) if you have any questions, comments, or problems with r/colorblind!
