Treatment

You’ll have difficulty telling if colors are blue and yellow, or red and green. Colors as they look to a person with normal color perception vs. a person with color blindness are mildly different. It is rare for a color blind person to see only in shades of gray. Most people who are considered color blind can see colors, but certain are easily confused with other colors, depending on the type of color absence they have.

Tests measure how well you identify different colors. In one type of test, you look at sets of colored dots and try to find a pattern in them, such as a letter or number. The patterns you see help your doctor know which colors you have trouble with. In another type of test, you arrange colored chips in order according to how similar the colors are. People with color vision problems cannot arrange the colored chips properly.

Effects

1. SBS: Shaken baby syndrome. This can cause brain damage and this can cause color blindness in infants and children. The damage is permanent so the effects will be carried on into adult life.2. Trauma: Similar to SBS, accidents and other traumas can cause swelling in the visual processing center in the brain.3. UV Damage: Usually caused during childhood where over-exposure to UV rays causes deterioration of the retina, this is the leading cause of blindness in the world, however the damage usually only takes effect when people get older.

Causes

The X-linked genetic modes of inheritance are the traits or genetic disorders seen in the progeny due to the presence of a gene on the X chromosome. There are two X-chromosomes in females and males have one X and one Y chromosome. The genes present on the X are recessive or dominant and the way they are expressed in either of the sexes is different.
