Agree Robert - pity results are not clear for we lay people.

I lost a police officer job due to my results on the color vision tests. In one instance I failed the Ishihara, and on a second try I passed it. I took a more thorough exam which showed where my deficiency was. As many of you here can, I can also see individual colors without any problems, which confuses and frustrates me. I heard about an eye doctor who can create filtered lenses for daily eyeglasses to help some color-deficient people see colors more clearly. Has anyone else heard of this? Of my top career aspirations, being a pilot, police officer or electrician is out of the questions I guess.
I was an electrician for 20 years - and colour defective but there was not much colour to worry about most of the time - red black and green. The red green were a pain but then flexible cords went to brown, a lousy choice, blue a good choice and green/yellow for earth/ ground - a piece of cake.
I find the street lights. stop lights and turn light on cars all the same. Great choice you colour pickers!
The green traffic light is so pale and such a grot green, my wife tells me, that there is no wonder it looks white to some of us.
In the US some traffic lights are horitontal not vertical - now that IS useful- not- as we use the position to tell what light is on.
Top - stop - bottom go.
If the low sun shines on them - well any could be on - or off!
Best colour for most of us is brlue - but that is used mainly by police in the US and emergency vehicles in general in the UK.

I am about as colorblind as you can get. It has limited me in that I cannot work in law enforcement (besides being a prosecutor) or get a pilot's license or be a firefighter.(Artist outside of black and white)
Visibone.com is a very informative site with links on colorblindness. I recommend looking at the webdesigners color chart which is used to help design web pages that colorblind people will not have trouble with. It has been the only way I have found to explain what it is like to see color but not like everybody else does.
I hope one day they find a cure, it seems not be a priority.
I can spot camoflage too, the only benefit.
Anybody hear of any other advances?
Hi. Do you only see shades of grey? My 6 year old has just been diagnosed as monochromatic (red-green and blue-yellow) so he doesn't see any colour. How do you cope on a day-to-day basis?

How much will it cost me to get contact lenses from Dr. Azman if I'm colorblind?
