Curing Color Blindness
No: This is an inherited deficiency in the spectrum of the photoreceptors in your retina. Red color contacts have been proposed for relief but these merely shift the axis of non-recognition inducing a new type of color deficiency. There is no cure although a stem cell bit of research has worked to improve the color recognition in laboratory animals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vision impairment and blindness are conditions in which a person cannot see well or see at all, even with glasses or contact lenses. If a person's best vision (with correction) out of either eye is only 20/70 - 20/200, he is impaired. If he can see no better than 20/200 or his visual field is no more than 20 degrees (severe "tunnel" vision), ...Read more
No: There is no cure for colorblindedness.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not usually: Congenital colorblindness is static and cannot be improved and will not worsen. Patients with this defect learn to account for their difference in vision over time. Acquired color blindness due to retinal or optic nerve damage can occasionally be partially reversible if the causative factor is removed. Often this is not the case though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No cure: Most color blindness comes from a genetic alteration in your light receptive pigments in the retina. This cannot be altered by current knowledge and technology. If you are 45 years, you probably will have adapted by now and chosen an occupation in which color recognition is not critical. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have got macular dystrophy and I am total color blind. My eyes are highly sensative to bright light.What can be one to cure?
Not available yet: You have an inherited degeneration of the macular light receptive cells. Currently no cure is available. Much investigation is underway for these conditions. The best current hope seems to be in the use of stem cells but much work needs to be done. Keep in touch. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
About 8%: The standard statistics for inherited color deficiency is about 7.5% in males and 1/2 % in females. This can vary somewhat with different racial groups. The degree of color deficiency and the type are variable so your ophthalmologist can test you and see in which category you are if that is important to you and also give you information about your family possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends upon age: Obviously inability to distinguish between red / green colors. Some have trouble with blue/yellow. It does assume the child knows his colors. I am not aware of a condition where no colors are seen. These are usually specific to certain colors. ...Read more
Testing: The most common type of "color blindness" is red-green color deficiency. Blue-yellow deficiency or true color blindness (achromatopsia) are rare. Color testing can identify which. The problem is a lack of certain types of cones or their opsins (light-sensitive compounds). Red-green deficiency can be adapted to fairly easily and is not very limiting, but the others can significantly impact vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
