Characteristics

Color blindness changes your life. It makes it hard to write, read, and learn. You may be able to see colors but not tell the difference between them, or you may only be able to see black, white, and gray. You also may be able to see colors but just shades of them. Sometimes you might be so color blind you don't even know you are. It affects your life because you can't see colors in the usual way. Like for example you can't see colors on a traffic light.


Cause

There isn't really a certain mutation that colorblind affects. It affects your X chromosome. It can effect anyone and you are born with it.
