Color Blindness

Color blindness is the inability to distinguish colors in normal lightning. This deficiency occurs mainly in men but every so often can occur in women. I took the color blindness test on the website EnChroma. I scored a normal color vision which indicates that I have a high probability of having normal color vision. This website only does a small amount of testing because it is impossible to do the full test via the computer without the EnChroma glasses. When a person with normal color vision puts on the EnChroma glasses they experience a "color boost". This effect is what allows people with color blindness to somewhat perceive color better. This test is definitely a good basic indicator to detect whether or not someone might be borderline colorblind and if they should go for further testing.
