Famous colour blind artist[edit]

Clinical and Experimental Optometry has an article showing that Clifton Pugh on biographical, inheritance and other grounds was was a protanope. I have looked hard but cannot see any place suitable for this information in the article. There is no section for "notable color blind people" though such sections exist for example for Prosopagnosia. I have put this information with reference (more details are in the online abstract) in Color blindness and occupations though this is not the ideal place. However the information is important since it shows that color blindness should not stop people for seeking to become artists if that is their talent.

Epidemiology: Prevalence of color blindness table[edit]

The Epidemiology section suggests there is regional variation in the incidence of color blindness. It is not clear whether the information in the present table is for the world or for a particular country or region (and the source from which the table is copied is silent on this). It would be useful instead to have a table illustrating the regional variation, if there is a good source for such information. --Frans Fowler (talk) 06:46, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Adding of 4 Citations to help credibility of article[edit]

1. Updated a source in the background about statistics of those color blind 2. Added in a sentence in Anomalous trichromacy section to give readers better understanding of its relevance in comparison to other types of color blindness with a notable source. 3. Added in a notable source about Ishihara color test 4. Added source to Design Implication section

spectrum-notching eyeglasses[edit]

Are these novel enough to merit space? Any experts?

Possible text: More recently, spectrum-notching eyeglasses have been developed [1]; like tinted glasses, they cut out some spectral frequencies, but in a narrower, sharper-edged frequency range [2]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HLHJ (talkcontribs) 15:38, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Image Problem[edit]

For the sake of pluralism please remove the U.S.A. flag and put another more appropriate image, since this is a scientific topic I consider that no political topics, imaginery or symbolism must be used. Thanks. I recommend the image of the reference [1] , which is creative commons free and shows better the different color blindness problems. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.193.41.99 (talk) 15:24, 28 February 2015 (UTC) |I agree with you.

Colorblind people who read this article[edit]

How are colorblind people like me supposed to understand the difference between the pictures of apples? The pictures showing how a colorblind person would see the apples are intended for people with normal vision. For me, I can clearly see the left apple is red and the right one is green. And the pictures beneath show them with brownish tones. Am I even considered colorblind? I know there are different types (I'm talking about the red-green one), but are there degrees of color blindness? I have no problems with distinguishing red from green except that I fail to see the numbers in those pictures, which have no practical use in everyday life. --2.245.220.72 (talk) 21:06, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes there are degrees of color blindness, and yes if you can't see the numbers then you have a form of color blindness indeed, but probably not severe enough as to interfere with your life. For more info you can probably read this site, it's very interesting http://www.color-blindness.com/ --Krystaleen 03:50, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
