Colour blindness is not categorized as the type of blindness. Then what is it? Colour Blindness is the deficiency of the way you distinguish between colours like yellow and blue, or red and green. So, it is less likely that a person with colour blindness can see everything as only white and black. Your Ophthalmologist might also refer to it as colour vision deficiency. On average, the colour blindness treatment can cost you Rs 1 Lakh but that depends from patient to patient. Only after the diagnosis, it can be clear what treatment plan will suit you the best and how much will be the treatment cost.
Is colour blindness inherited?
This condition is likely to be inherited and its prevalence is higher in males as compared to females. In certain cases, an individual with certain eye problems or taking certain medication are at higher risk of colour blindness.
What are the symptoms of colorblindness?
The individual might be having a colour deficiency and they may not know it. The parents of some children may or may not be able to figure out that their child is having some kind of problem of seeing different kinds of the colours.
How do the parents come to know if their child is having some kind of problem seeing the colours?
According to one experience, the parents of the child immediately visited us when their child failed to distinguish between the colours of a traffic light. They described the incident in the words, “We were standing in front of the traffic lights. We asked our child what the three colours of the traffic lights were and he was not able to answer that, which gave us the indication that something is surely wrong with our child.”
The expert eye doctors for eyes in Punjab made us aware of the fact that if the person is suffering from colour blindness then it becomes difficult for him to distinguish:
- Different shades of the red and the green
- Different shades of the blue and the yellow
- Any kind of the colour
Did you know?
The most common colour deficiency involves the inability to distinguish different shades of red and green.
When should you see the doctor?
In case you are not able to distinguish the specific colours, then you should consult the opthalmologist who will examine you whether you are suffering from colour blindness or not.
Which are the various causes of colour blindness?
The light which enters our lens through the cornea contains the wavelengths of all the possible colours. There is a tissue in the eyes which is somewhat like jelly which is present in the macular area of the retina which is situated at the back. The chemicals present in the cone (the cells which are sensitive to the light, medium and the long wavelengths of the light) are accountable for triggering the reaction and sending the wavelength information to the brain through optic nerves.
