Everyone was once colourblind

One out of every hundred American citizens is color blind. But did you know that everyone is color blind at one point in their life. As a newborn until about six to eight months old, babies are in a state of being colorblind because their cone cells have not developed yet.

Many people have a misconception of what it is like to be colorblind. Rather than not being able to see colors, those who are colorblind have a hard time distinguishing between colors. Of the different forms of color blindness, someone who is color blind usually finds it difficult to determine red and green hues or blue and yellow hues.

Do you think you are colorblind? You can test yourself by taking the Ishihara Test for Colour Blindness.
