Color Blindness

By: Ellie and Chloe

Our Essential Question: How do people with color blindness adapt to a world full of color?

FIRST HERE ARE SOME FACTS ABOUT COLOR BLINDNESS:


- Color blindness is caused by light sensitive cells in the back of your eye, the retina

- Monochromatic vision is when you see every thing in shades of gray

- Color blindness may be a result of eye disease or an injury to the brain


REPRODUCTION:

- If a color blind man marries a woman with no family history of color blindness , their children will have normal color vision

- If a woman whose father is color blind marries a man with normal color vision , every child that they have will have a 50-50 chance of inheriting color blindness

- About 1 in every 30,000 people are truly blind to all color

- 1 in every 12 men has a red-green color vision defect compare to about 1 out of every 200 women


HOW PEOPLE WITH COLOR BLINDNESS ADAPT:

- Sadly as a natural reaction some of those's brains get so used to not seeing color naturally that they do not even realize that they even have color blindness

- some of those have learned to use the color names that every one else uses

- There have bean glasses invented to help those with color blindness
