Some treatments help people better perceive colors, but it’s equally important to find ways to adjust to color blindness.

Most forms of color blindness are inherited at birth.
Red-green color blindness is the most common form of color blindness. This condition makes it difficult for people to distinguish between different shades of red and green.

As of right now, there is no cure for color blindness and no medical treatment for genetic forms of color blindness.

It is common for people with color blindness to learn to live with the condition and adapt to it. People with color vision deficiencies often experience only minor inconveniences.

People sometimes go many years without realizing that they see colors differently.

The diagnosis of color blindness may come as an adult or they may never be diagnosed.

1. Use Mobile Applications To Identify Colors

Taking a picture and pointing at the items in the image will tell you the colors of the items.

Here are our favorites – Color Grab, Color Picker & Color Detector

You can save a lot of time and money if you care about your appearance and you are aware of its impact on it.

2. Colorblind Glasses

A colorblind person can distinguish between colors like purple and blue, or brown and green with colorblind glasses like EnChroma & Pilestone. Colorblind glasses may improve color perception, vibrancy, and depth for color-blind people.

With these glasses, the brain can distinguish between wavelengths between green and red as they are made with certain minerals that absorb and filter out certain wavelengths between green and red.

A person whose deficiency is caused by a complete lack of red or green photoreceptors will not be helped by color blindness-correcting glasses.

Additionally, wearing the glasses only has a positive effect for a limited time. To fix color blindness, the glasses do not alter a person’s photoreceptors, optic nerves, or visual cortex in any way.

Please note that this is not a cure, and results may vary. It is common for color perceptions to differ from person to person, so everyone’s experience will be different. Several people find that colorblind glasses don’t work at all for them.

3. Use Color Names Stickers

Colorblind people have difficulty using colors correctly. It is very difficult to find products that help them. One of the most useful products I have found is color-name stickers, which can make a huge difference in the lives of people who are colorblind.

A common way to make school or work less stressful for colorblind people is to label colors. They will never miss important information and will be able to understand the subject fully. Teachers can use colored stickers for colored pencils/markers for drawing or labels for charts and graphs.

Color name stickers are not just for children, so many colorblind artists, painters, and designers use these stickers to prevent mistakes in their works.

4. Purchase A Talking Color Identifier Device.

Electronic color identifiers are gadgets for the visually impaired that scan garments and other items and announce their color. Most of these devices can pick up about 100 different colors or shades and may be programmed in different languages. Ask your doctor about buying one of these devices in your area.

5. Use A Seekey Tool To Distinguish Colors.

Seekey is a simple tool for those with red-green color vision deficiency, the most common form of color blindness. It has red and green plastic filters that allow you to alter how you perceive colors. Keep this tool with you to use in situations when you have difficulty telling colors apart.

Color Blindness Research

Researchers are working on new ways to treat color blindness.
Some research has focused on gene therapies to correct the genetic abnormalities that cause the most common forms of color blindness.
Potential gene replacement therapy for red-green color blindness has already been tested in animals.

Last year, researchers in Seattle announced that they were developing a gene-based therapy for red-green color blindness in humans, but a cure for red-green color blindness is likely still several years away.
