COLOR BLINDNESS

WHAT IS COLOR BLINDNESS?

Color blindness, also known as color vision deficiency, is a genetic condition affecting about 10% of the male population. The most common form of this condition is known as red-green color deficiency. Color blindness can be caused by by trauma, disease or chemical damage to the eye, optic nerve or parts of the brain that processes color information.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COLOR BLINDNESS?

Patients who have been impacted with color blindness typically have difficulty differentiating shades of different colors. For example, patients with “normal” color vision will have no difficulty determining differences in varying shades of blue, pink or green. A patient who is color blind (red-green color deficient) will be able to identify the primary colors with ease. However, he will have difficulty separating varying shades of blues, greens, pinks etc. A pair of grey pants may appear blue. He may not be able to tell the difference between varying
shades of green.

HOW DO WE TREAT COLOR BLINDNESS?

To restore quality color vision to this patient population, our specialty practice uses a life changing technology known as GVR Color Enhanced Soft Lenses. These lenses have special tints of varying shades and colors designed to restore quality color vision to those whose lives have been impacted by this condition. Before fitting patients with these high tech lenses, a comprehensive ocular health and vision examination is performed. All of our patients who have had difficulty passing their color vision screening tests for employment
or job advancement have been able to pass these tests with the specialty color enhancing lenses that we designed for them. The attached photo is one example of a GVR Color Enhanced Lens on a patient’s eye.
