No: Most genetic forms of colorblindness have no associated systemic disease. You should be ok.

Depends: There is no relationship between ordinary color deficiency and acuity or the need for spectacles. Color blindness is not tested for instance on obtaining a driver's license. Some occupations do require this testing and if you are color deficient, you likely will fail that. There is no correlation with blood diseases or other systemic diseases. Most medical tests are not color dependent.
