Colour blindness affects 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women. That’s nearly 300 million people in the world! To them, the image of the leaves do not appear in the colours green to yellow to red to brown. They appear just green or red. Not, green to red. Colour blindness (also known as red-green colour blindness or colour vision deficiency) is the spectral overlap of the red and green spectrum, which results in a duller vision. It’s something most of us take very lightly but to the many who are affected, they feel shortchanged. They learnt to live with it but knew that they never saw the world the way others saw it.
