THIS Is How People With Color Blindness See the World | 22 Words

If you have normal vision, you probably don't think about how the world would look if your eyes couldn't see every color, like those who are colorblind. Luckily, a website called let's you take a glimpse.

Despite the name, color blindness doesn't actually mean that people see the world in black and white. In fact, more than 99% of all colorblind people can see color. In fact, there are several variations of vision deficiency, as you'll see below, and it's amazing how different all the images look depending on what they can see.

Normal vision

This is what a majority of people can see.


This is the most common type of color blindness. Around 4.63% of men and 0.36% of women experience this type of color vision deficiency, many of whom don't even realize it. They see a more subdued color palette, especially when it comes to colors like green and red.


When somebody has Protanopia, all shades of green and red look rather faded, whereas yellow and blue shades seem largely unaffected. Only around 1% of men experience this type of color vision deficiency (CVD).


People with Tritanopia see colors with a greenish/pink tone. It's a very rare form of color blindness and is believed to affect only 0.0001% of men and women.

Total color blindness (Monochromacy)

This is the rarest form of color vision deficiency. People who have it can only see in black and white, but it's estimated that only 0.00003% of the world's population are affected by this particular condition. Now take a look at the images Bored Panda ran through different CVD lenses...
