I'm taking a break from "Evolution" blog entries to introduce people to this website called Vischeck.
Vischeck is a website devoted to colorblindness.
It has a colorblind image simulator that simulates three types of colorblindness:
- Deuteranopia(red/green colorblindness; the most common type)
- Protanopia(a less common type of red/green colorblindness)
- Tritanopia(the rarest type of colorblindness; blue/yellow colorblindness)
This is how the three different types of colorblind people see the same wheel:
Deuteranopes and Protanopes see a normal color wheel only in shades and tints of blue and yellow.
