Color Blindness: The majority of color vision deficiency (note I didn't say blindness as visual acuity is not usually affected) comes from a genetic disturbance causing poor or absent development of one or more familia of cone (color-receptor cell) in the retina. Most sufferers are male, since the genes for color vision reside on the X chromosome, only one of which is present in a male (XY versus XX in a female).

OTC Supplement: This is an OTC supplement commonly found in body building products and in OTC remedies for erectile dysfunction! It is derived from the bark if a tree found in Central Africa! Chemically, in case you are so inclined, it acts as an alpha2 antagonist!

A rose by any name..: Regardless of what you call them, lens opacities (and corneal ones, too) can cause glare. Other causes possible as well, like dryness of the ocular surface, scratches on your eyeglasses or protein on your contacts. What to do depends on the clinical course (getting worse or staying stable) and how much they affect your function. Use ocular lubricants daily. Recheck in a few months. Go from there.
