What is Color blindness?

Color blindness is the inability to distinguish the differences between certain colors. This condition results from absence of color-sensitive pigment in the cone cells of the retina, the nerve layer at the back of the eye.

How do you get Color Blindness?

Most color vision problems are inherited and are present at birth. People usually have 3 types of cone cells in the eye. Each type senses either red,green,or blue light. You see color when your cone cells sense different amounts of these 3 basic colors.
