Color blindness affects millions of people worldwide. It affects 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women. The condition ranges from a variety of classes, red-green color blindness being the most common. The color blind have the inability to clearly distinguish between different colors, they tend to see colors in a limited range of hues. Because of this, the color blind have trouble with a lot of websites, signs, games or anything else involving color.

*Deuteranopia (Green-Blind): * With this type of color blindness people aren’t able to differentiate red and green. Reds are often mistaken as brown/yellow and green as beige. With deuteranopia, the green cone is missing.

Deuteranomaly (Green-Weak): This is the most common type of color blindness. People with this type see yellow and green as more red.
It is also hard to tell the difference between violet from blue. With deuteranomaly, the green cone is malfunctioning.

Protanopia: People who have this type of color blindness see red as black. Shades will appear more yellow, specifically those that are orange, green, and yellow. The red cone is missing in protanopia.

Protanomaly: With this type of color blindness, colors do not appear as bright. Colors such as red, orange, and yellow are greener. For those with protanomaly, the red cone is malfunctioning.

Tritanomaly: This type of color blindness is very rare. People will see blue as green.
They also struggle to differentiate yellow and red from pink. The blue cone is malfunctioning in tritanomaly.

Tritanopia: This is known as blue-yellow color blindness. People will see blue as green. They will also see yellow as violet or a light grey. The blue cone is missing.

Achromatopsia or Rod Monochromacy: With this color blindness, people are unable to differentiate any colors. They can only see black, white and shades of grey. This type of color blindness also causes severe light sensitivity. While this is the most severe, it is the most common type of complete color blindness.

Achromatomaly or Blue Cone Monochromacy: With this type of color blindness, people struggle to distinguish colors. It is very rare. All three cones are not functional.

Dogs do see some color. Unlike humans who are trichromatic, dogs are dichromats (only possess two color receptors/cones). Researchers have found that dogs have similar vision to those with a type of red-green color blindness.
