The term for the condition I have is a Color Deficiency even though most people call it color blindness. It is mostly men who inherit color blindness, affecting about 1 in 20 men for every 1 in 200 women. I don't think it affects my photography, but I always wonder what things look like to the "normal eye."

Yup - I suffer from Colour Deficiency as well.

I have absolutely no problem with photography and distinguishing colours in general, but give me any number of those tests where you have to spot shapes or numbers/letters hidden in the coloured dots and I'll fail every one
